1,498 Boxes of Cheerios Arrive at CAPC

Kinney Drugs donated 1,498 boxes of Cheerios cereal in support of the Community Action Planning Council Food Pantry.  What a way to boost CAPC’s share of the Feinstein Challenge Grant!  All donations received, financial or food, before April 30 are counted toward the Feinstein Challenge, an annual initiative that supports more than 2,000 food pantries around the country.   At the conclusion of the challenge, the Community Action Planning Council will receive a donation from the Feinstein Foundation (Rhode Island) based on the amount of food and funds raised in March and April.  Thank you, Kinney Drugs!

There are 24 more days left in April … lots of time to participate in the Feinstein Challenge.  Call the Community Action Planning Council at 315.782.4900, ext. 257 to find out how you can help make a difference.
