Bateman collects nearly 30,000 boxes of cereal

Pine Bluff business woman Wanda Bateman collected 26,019 boxes of cereal for the “Today’s THV Summer Cereal Drive” which ended Friday.

Bateman, owner of Margland Bed & Breakfast, raised the community’s interest and money for the cereal drive. The food will stay in Jefferson County to feed children during those times that schools are closed and children don’t have access to breakfast, a spokesman said.
