The Montverde Academy Middle-school’s 2015 Spring Cereal Drive will take place April 7th – 10th, 2015. The annual M.S. food-drive requests that the MVA community collects large boxes of cereal during summer break too. The Middle-school hopes to raise a goal of 365 boxes of cereal to support the Lake County, Florida, charitable organization Buses ‘n Backpacks. According to their website, Buses n’ Backpacks of Clermont, Florida, is “a weekly effort to feed children who are afflicted by poverty and homelessness. We currently work with 16 local schools, serving 500 children each week.”
Mrs. Sara Stelle-Parets, Montverde Academy Middle-school 6th grade teacher, has asked every M.S. student to bring at least two boxes of cereal back to school from spring break – “one box of your assigned cereal and one of their free choice (preferably their personal favorite).” Please also remember to take advantage of “Buy One, Get One free” sales at stores such as Publix, and Target. Whether you choose to donate Fruity Pebbles, Rice Krispies, Frosted Flakes, Captain Crunch, Lucky Charms, Chex, or Cinnamon Toast Crunch- all cereals are welcomed donations, and it’s your choice!
