Let's put a healthy breakfast on the table for neighbors with life-threatening illnesses like cancer, kidney disease, and HIV/AIDS.
Between now and July 31, 2020, contribute or start your own virtual cereal drive to help us reach our goal of $50,000!
Many of the people who receive Project Angel Heart meals are underweight or malnourished as a result of their illness. And that's a problem! Maintaining a healthy weight is important, especially for people who have serious health conditions. There are many benefits of being at a healthy weight, including having enough energy to withstand medical treatments, having a stronger immune system, making medications more effective, and limiting side effects.
That’s why we provide a supplemental breakfast bag for clients who need extra calories. In addition to their medically tailored meals, more than 200 clients each week receive a bag filled with healthy breakfast cereal, milk, fruit and protein-rich items like peanut butter, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, and cheese.
Due to the coronavirus, we are unable to accept donated boxes of cereal this year. But our clients still need breakfast bags, so we’re going virtual... and you can help by donating online or hosting a virtual cereal drive. Simply create your own virtual cereal drive page and then encourage everyone in your network to support neighbors who are ill with a gift to your page. Thanks for helping us put breakfast on the table for Project Angel Heart clients!
