With ten community and media events throughout southeast Michigan, six DMC specialty center drop-off locations, an online Virtual Cereal Drive, and support from countless local businesses, the 2014 cereal drive grew larger than ever!

The hospital, staff, & community pulled together 441,709 servings of cereal
- that's 21,004 MORE servings than last year!

Thanks to a large donation from Kellogg, a total of 622,839 servings of
cereal were collected to help feed hungry kids this summer.

Gleaners thanks the Professional Nurse Council, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Children's Hospital of Michigan Foundation, Clear Channel radio, Fox 2, and everyone involved in making the cereal drive a huge success for hungry kids this year.

Pam Taurence explains why she, and others at the Children's Hospital of Michigan, decided to launch a cereal drive in 2010.

"We wanted to make a difference in the community, and we wanted it to affect kids. So what better way, I mean, if you don't eat, you just aren't going to be able to perform," she says.

"We ask people to bring oatmeal, Cheerios, something with some nutritional value. But kids like it. They eat it, they like it, and it's easy and convenient. You can make oatmeal with water, you can eat cereal without milk. So it works."
