The Archway and the Nebraska Firefighter’s Museum in Kearney will be competing against Stuhr Museum in Grand Island and Hastings Museum in Hastings to see which organization and community can collect the most canned food items to give to local food pantries.
Kearney area residents can drop off their items during normal operating hours at both museums. The Archway is open Monday-Saturday from 9am to 5pm and Sunday from Noon-5pm. Hours for the Firefighter’s Museum are Monday-Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 1pm-5pm. A list of items needed by the Jubilee Center can be found at www.kearneyjubilee.org/food-pantry.html, however neither museum is able to accept items needing to be frozen or refrigerated.
In 2014, the food drive collected nearly 3000 pounds of food items with only Stuhr and Hastings Museums participating. This year’s goal is to reach 5000 pounds of food donated to local pantries.
