Trinity Health Of New England Kicks Off Caring for Kids Cereal Drive

SPRINGFIELD — Trinity Health Of New England will kick off its Caring for Kids Cereal Drive on Friday, June 14 from 7 to 9 a.m. in the main lobby of Mercy Medical Center, 299 Carew St., Springfield. A speaking program at 8:30 a.m. will include Mercy Medical Center colleagues, community members, Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno, and state and local representatives.

The Caring for Kids Cereal Drive is a healthy initiative where Trinity Health Of New England and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center colleagues collect as many boxes of cereal as possible to help fight hunger and to make a difference in the lives of the children in our communities. During the summer months, kids are not as likely to have consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. The initiative collects cereal that is both nutritious and kid-friendly for children and families who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day — breakfast.

Leaders from both Trinity Health Of New England and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center will work with teams at each of their hospitals and partner with local food banks to plan and execute a successful cereal drive. This is a fun and exciting way for the organizations to work together to help fight hunger. For more information, visit www.trinityhealthofne.org/cereal-drive.
