Bud Johnson at the Wanee Theater continued his generous donations to the Kewanee Food Pantry this week. According to Mr. Johnson, sales of Monster Buckets of popcorn raised another $427.00. This brings the total donation after three weeks to $1700.00 for the Kewanee Food Pantry. The Kewanee Food Pantry is our Hometown Hope Grant recipient for the month of April. The Food Pantry, much like food pantries across the state, is seeing significant increase in demand. This means an increase in the amount of items needed. Your donations via popcorn purchases are helping tremendously.
When you buy a Monster Bucket of movie theater popcorn at the Wanee Cinemas, one dollar of the purchase goes to the Kewanee Food Pantry. You can also drop off donations beyond one dollar if you choose. Popcorn sales at the Wanee Cinemas take place each night from 5 Pm to 7 Pm.
