Hello,
I am sorry I haven't reached out for a while and when I do I am asking.....
We have 109 bags that go out each week to feed kiddo's in the elementary school's for the weekends. It seems like we always have a need for individual sizes of:
 
*Crackers (cheez its, peanut butter crackers, cheese crackers, goldfish crackers, chex mix)
*Granola bars (on the healthier side please)
*Fruit snacks
*Microwaveable Popcorn (butter preferred)
 
IF you are able to help we sure would appreciate it. Drop off donations at the barrel at Price Chopper or the Pantry. We are here Tuesday's 9:30 to 4:00 and Thursday's 10:00 to 6:00.
Or we have a bench outside the back door for your convenience.
 
Thank you for helping,
Suzanne

Kearney Clean Up Competition
KSD 6th and 7th grade students are working on a project called "Make Kearney a Better Place". A couple of the 7th grade students, Patrick and Carter, would like to focus their project on an idea for cleaning up trash around Kearney.

They have created a flyer to explain the details. They are proposing a Kearney Clean Up Competition and are asking businesses to get involved by donating items or gift cards for the prizes.

To Donate please contact Teacher, Jennifer Chrane at chranej@ksdr1.net.
Business of the Month
We are celebrating
Paisley Candle and Home
as our Business of the Month!

Since their Grand Opening in August 2019 Paisley Candle and Home has quickly become a Kearney favorite! Offering a variety of home décor, hand poured candles (thanks to Terry), boutique items, gourmet foods, and even products to show your love of your pets.
This innovative business kept us all in the shopping habit during the shut-down by offering personal shopping experiences, Paisley Pack deliveries, and porch pick-ups.
You can count on the Paisley staff, Melissa and Greg, to help you pick out that perfect gift or accent piece. They are constantly updating and adding items to the store’s unique and stylish inventory with each new season. As if it couldn’t get any better, they added Paisley Perk to the lineup last spring (shout out to Barista, Natalia).
And now, owner Brian Hamm is about to realize the fruits of his labor after planting 2000 tulip bulbs last October.
Drop by to congratulate and support our business of the month and help them kick off Tulip Time this weekend!
