The Detroit Fire Department is participating in a Cereal Drive with Children’s Hospital of Michigan and Gleaners Food Bank to collect cereal on behalf of children in need of food during the summer months.
The Cereal Drive will be held from Monday, June 13, 2016 – Monday, June 20, 2016 at the fire stations in your Community. The Detroit Fire Department is asking residents to deliver new unopened boxes of cereal to their respective fire stations during the designated week. Following June 20, 2016 the donated cereal will be delivered to Gleaners Food Bank for distribution.
The Department is proud to work on this project with the Detroit Fire Fighters Association. “There are no labor lines when Community service is required. The Department and the Union are always proud to work together to serve the citizens of Detroit,” says Eric Jones, Executive Fire Commissioner.
