Cereal from Santa



CerealClinton radio station, 1340 am, KROS is once again spearheading a campaign to help area food banks.  “Cereal From Santa” will be held the week of December of 9th through December 14th and is designed to help stock area food banks with cereal, a commodity that has been hard to come by this year.  Cereal is one of the pantries most requested items and a favorite among children.  Cereal has a long shelf life and doesn’t require special storage or cooking.

“KROS is always looking for ways we can help in the community.  The past couple of years we collected peanut butter and had great success doing that,” says KROS staff member, Greg Naftzger.  “This year we decided to change things up a bit because the local food pantries have had a hard time getting cereal.  Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and what better way to start the day than with a bowl of cereal.  Many children are sent to school without breakfast and we want to help them get a great, healthy start to their day.”

Donations of cereal through “Cereal from Santa” will go to Fulton, Thomson and Albany food banks in Illinois and the Clinton and Camanche pantries in Iowa.  “Cereal from Santa” is a program that anyone can participate in and any kind of cereal will be accepted.  Just pick up an extra box or bag of cereal the next time you’re getting groceries and drop it off at one of our sponsors during the week of December 9th.

The list of drop off locations include:

  • The Savanna-Thomson State Bank in Thomson
  • Lockhart & Law Ins.
  • Bittersweet Salon/D & M Embroidery
  • Fulton Journal Office
  • Fulton City Hall
  • Mor-Huiz Promotions/River Huis Traders Antiques in Fulton
