The Richardson mayor’s summer internship program is collecting donations for kid-friendly snacks for the “Healthy Kids Snack Drive” now through Aug. 5.
Healthy snacks items needed for donation include fruit cups, cereal cups, oatmeal cups, apple sauce, juice boxes, macaroni and cheese cups and soup cups.
The snack drive is organized by high school interns in the program and will benefit families in need.

Any leftover items will be distributed to area children served by the Network of Community Ministries.
