Throughout November, St. James will be partnering with Project Angel Heart to provide breakfast cereal for the organization's clients who need extra nutrition.
This year, Project Angel Heart will deliver 335,000 meals to at least 2,900 Coloradans living with life-threatening illnesses in the Denver and Colorado Springs communities. They serve children as well as seniors, clients as well as their families, and many who are living in poverty or who have been diagnosed with a mental illness or cognitive disability in addition to their disease diagnosis.
We've set up a donation bin for cereal in the narthex, alongside the bins for clothing and canned goods that go to other charities. Throughout November, please consider picking up some extra cereal on trips to the grocery store and bringing it to church.
Project Angel Heart requests they be standard-size boxes of healthy, whole grain cereals, such as Cheerios, Chex, Bran Flakes, Corn Flakes, Special K, Kix, Shredded Wheat, Rice Krispies, Kashi, Fiber One, etc. Please do not donate sugary cereal, chocolate or marshmallow cereal, hot cereal, or individual or bulk-sized boxes.
