Cram the Van Returns
And we’re off! September is here and it’s officially time to Cram the Van! The big red van will make its first stop in Leoti on Sept. 13 on the Wichita County Courthouse lawn. We’ll be serving hamburgers and hot dogs hot off the grill, in exchange for your donation to the local food bank. You’ll also have a chance to enter to win a free night stay at the Hotel at Waterwalk in Wichita. Thanks to our generous friends at the Waterwalk, we’ll once again be offering a number of free night stays and weekend packages at select events this year. Listen and watch for local ads identifying registration locations throughout this year’s drive.
You don’t have to wait for the big red van to show up in your town to make a donation. In addition to the 11 events we’ll be conducting across our service territory, we’ll also have donation bins located at every Wheatland Electric office, Hired Man Grocery and Grill in Conway Springs, Caldwell City Hall and Wheatland Broadband. Drop your donations off during business hours. At the end of October, we deliver the donations to the local food bank in the community in which they were donated. Thanks to you, we’ve collected more than 7.5 tons of food over the last two years. Will you help us get to 10 tons? We know you will, so thanks in advance for helping us Cram the Van!
