This story hits me in the feels for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost because one of our biggest missions here at the radio station is ending hunger for our fellow community members right here in Central Maine. The second reason is because as a 2006 graduate of Erskine Academy, I just love to see them stepping up to help combat the same crisis. Hunger in Maine.

After seeing that a neighboring school (and competitor!) Cony High School had done this same thing a few weeks ago, and being issued a challenge from the Rams, Erskine couldn't just sit idly by and not help. So, they decided to jump on board and do the Domino Effect Cereal Box Challenge. The goal is to raise more than 1,000 boxes of cereal for area food banks. Did you know that cereal is one of the most needed food items for our local pantries?

Not only do they want to raise more than 1,000 boxes, they also want to beat Cony's final tally. This is totally a competition that deserves all of our support. You can make a cash or cereal donation right to Erksine Academy, or you can find their shuttles parked at area schools over the weekend as they set up temporary staging areas to collect donations.

For more information, and to find out when and where the 'cereal box shuttle' will be near you, listen to our interview with a couple incredible Erskine students from Student Council and Erskine's Jobs For Maine Graduates (JMG).
