2022 marks the 35th Anniversary for the 10/11 Can Care-a-Van. This drive has been helping to feed Nebraskans since 1988. While much has changed over the past three decades, hunger has persisted in our communities. That need keeps Nebraskans coming out year after year to help stock the shelves of their local food pantries.
During the week of June 6, 10/11 News personalities will help collect donations for pantries in the communities of Superior, Sutton, Aurora, Grand Island, Beatrice, Crete, Columbus and Nebraska City. Additional collections will be held in Ord, Neligh, Atkinson, Ainsworth, York, Hastings, Geneva and Lexington.
This event helps fill the shelves at the local food pantries for the entire year.
JBS is partnering with 10/11 for Can Care-a-Van. “JBS is excited to sponsor this year's Can Care-a-Van and help alleviate hunger in our community,” said Mat Trowbridge, plant manager at JBS Grand Island. “As a company, it is our top priority to advocate and take action on issues that affect our community and supporting the Can Care-a-Van is one way we can help meet a critical need across Nebraska.”
Black Hills Energy will also partner with 10/11 for their eighth year, sending teams to volunteer at stops along the route. “Here at Black Hills Energy, we live, work and are involved in our communities, we are committed to improve life with energy,” said Kevin Jarosz, vice president of Nebraska gas operations. “Supporting the annual Can Care-a-Van to help meet the needs of the food insecure is just one of the ways we can give back. We are proud to be part of this effort again this year.”
