Scranton teacher collects enough cereal boxes to feed city's schools

Ms. Cameron Kremer's heartwarming drive to demonstrate kindness to kids has led to incredible outreach by the community.

SCRANTON, Arkansas — According to a Facebook post from the Scranton School District, elementary teacher Ms. Kremer worked with the school to organize a cereal drive where 435 boxes and 288 cups of cereal were donated to children in need.

That's enough for each child in the district to take a box home, and the cups along with other miscellaneous items will be added to the district's outreach programs. 

The district expresses thanks "to everyone who donated money and/or cereal toward this drive." They go on to thank "Kaylee West, our elementary school counselor, for teaching our students about how being kind can create a domino effect of kindness."
