UPPER TOWNSHIP – Andrew Ciurczak, a senior at St. Augustine Prep High School, is helping to provide several hundred local families with breakfast this Christmas through his “Cereal from Santa” project.

Ciurczak, of Upper Township, is organizing the effort as part of a Caritas community service project. Caritas is the Latin word for charity or love.

 

Members of the local Knights of Columbus gathered with Ciurczak at the Seaville Acme to promote the effort. Donated boxes of cereal will go to Knights of Columbus Council #9113’s Feed the Needy program, or the Community Food Pantry at the Church of the Resurrection in Marmora.

The Feed the Needy program has provided Christmas meals and toys to local families with children for more than 20 years. Around 200 families are helped each year, according to a press release.

Boxes of hot or cold cereal can be dropped off at the church during weekend Mass, or at St. Casimir’s Church in Woodbine. All cereal collected will be distributed locally.
