At Kunes Auto Group, we're more than just cars; we're about driving positive change in our communities. In a recent heartfelt Kunes Car Convo, Jen Myers, our Director of Marketing and a dedicated volunteer at the Walworth County Food and Diaper Bank (WCFDB), sat down with Tammy Dunn, the energetic Executive Director of WCFDB. Their conversation sheds light on the remarkable work being done and how you can lend a helping hand.

A Night of Fun for a Serious Cause

The upcoming Friday Night Celebration Polka Party on March 1st promises a brat buffet (thanks to Lake Geneva Meats), lively tunes from the Alex Meixner Band, a stein hoisting competition, a meat raffle, a silent auction, and a cash bar. This sold-out event is a testament to the community's support, but don't worry if you missed out this time—there's always a next time to join the fun and make a difference.

More Than Just Food: A Comprehensive Support System

The Walworth County Food & Diaper Bank is not just about feeding the hungry; it's about nurturing a community. Offering more than just food, their facility supports families facing tough times, ensuring they have access to necessities like diapers, incontinence products for adults, and feminine hygiene products. This comprehensive approach helps alleviate some of the pressures faced by those living paycheck to paycheck or dealing with unexpected life events.

Fresh and Nutritious: A Commitment to Health

Believe it or not, WCFDB’s shelves are stocked with fresh produce like carrots, potatoes, apples, broccoli, and even figs! Thanks to generous donations from local businesses like Kwik Trip and Simple Café and Bakery, families have access to nutritious food options, underscoring their commitment to health and well-being.

Your Dollar Does More

Did you know that every dollar you donate to the Walworth County Food & Diaper Bank can turn into $7 worth of food? Thanks to strategic partnerships, your contributions stretch further, enabling them to provide essential support to families in need. Whether it's $25 or $10,000, every bit helps in making a substantial impact.

Looking Ahead: Expanding to Serve More

With plans to eventually expand to a larger facility, the Walworth County Food & Diaper Bank is poised to extend its reach, serving more families and addressing the needs of the ALICE population—those who are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. This move is a step towards ensuring that no one in our community has to go without the basics.

Feeding the Future: Beyond the Meal

The work of the Walworth County Food & Diaper Bank goes beyond providing meals; it's about feeding hope and empowering individuals. By easing the burden of food insecurity, the Bank allows families to focus on building a brighter future, one where every child can bring birthday treats to class without worry, and every adult can face the day with dignity.

A Call to Action: Join Us in Making a Difference

As part of the Kunes Auto Group family, we believe in driving positive change. The dedication of volunteers and the generosity of donors fuel the Walworth County Food & Diaper Bank's mission. Whether through donating, volunteering, or simply spreading the word, your support makes a world of difference.
