From the Associate Director,
A huge thank you goes out to all of you! You have blessed the camp with cereal, on top of cereal, on top of cereal! We have received well over 300 boxes of cereal and I know there is more to come in. So, THANK YOU so much for your partnership with us in this endeavor to stock the pantry with cereal! When we decided not to have Celebrate Good Times again this year, the first thing I thought is, where are we going to get cereal for this summer? Then I thought I would put a plea out to our churches and ask for cereal donations. We have historically had a few churches that really push cereal donations, but the bulk of our donations comes from Celebrate Good Times. I was a little nervous that we would have to scrounge this year and figure ways to purchase cereal in bulk. Then slowly cereal was being dropped off at the camp. 10-15 boxes at a time, the donations came in. Then, 30+ boxes. Then 51 boxes. Then around 100 boxes! I know there is one church that is sitting on 90 boxes, as I write this article and will definitely have over 100 by the end of the week! I am blown away at your support and dedication to helping the ministry of Hanging Rock. When you think about it, a $3 box of cereal doesn't seem like much, but when you think of 300-500 boxes of cereal, that is a huge cost savings you have provided the camp! Now to go organize and put away all of the cereal we have on hand. Thank You again for your support!
If you were not able to donate cereal, don't worry we have more needs: We haven't been able to have our Ladies Spring Bring event the last 2 years and we have felt the effects of it. Here is how you can help. We need paper towels, blue Dawn dish soap, laundry soap, gallon zip-loc bags, Mr. Clean magic erasers, air fresheners, kitchen towels and dish rags. If you can help donate these items, we would greatly appreciate it. Set up a collection area at your church and help promote the need. All of you rocked it with the cereal drive, now let's pack out the kitchen with cleaning supplies!
