CEREDO - River Valley CARES: Center for Addiction Research, Education, and Support would like to share their appreciation for the staff, students and families of Ceredo-Kenova Elementary School. This local elementary school did a great deed by sponsoring the first food drive in an effort to support and stock RV CARES’ Baby Bites Pantry. This pantry will specifically serve infants, toddlers and their families/caregivers. The children from Ceredo-Kenova Elementary worked diligently to collect baby food, baby formula, baby cereal and more. These items will assist in ensuring babies and toddlers get nutritious foods to promote healthy development. Ms. Johnson’s third grade class collected the most food and will be rewarded with a pizza party for their hard work. RV CARES is grateful for the support from Ceredo-Kenova Elementary School and the C-K Community.
