Sheldon lends a hand at the Le Bonheur Cereal Drive

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Mississippi RiverKings mascot, Sheldon the Turtle, was on the street collecting donations during the Le Bonheur Cereal Drive to benefit the Mid-South Food Bank Friday, June 5.

Sheldon joined volunteers from the Mid-South Food Bank, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and the Chickasaw Council of the Boy Scouts of America to collect monetary donations to the Mid-South Food Bank. Sheldon carried an oversized metal spoon and a collection bucket to receive donations from drivers passing through the area.

“Thank you to Sheldon for coming to Le Bonheur to collect money for our Cereal Drive,” said David Henson, Le Bonheur spokesman. “It was great to see him getting people excited to donate. Everyone recognized and loved Sheldon. Le Bonheur is very appreciative to the Mississippi Riverkings and Sheldon for their help fill the Food Bank and raise awareness of childhood hunger.”
