Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.
That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.
And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.
The Racine County Food Bank recently became the proud recipient of 750 bottles of hand sanitizer donated by Butter Buds Inc. The individual-sized bottles will go out to the Food Bank’s clientele along with the food baskets they normally receive. According to Food Bank Director, Dan Taivalkoski, hand sanitizer is another item that is in great need and often hard for Food Bank clients to afford. “Butter Buds has been a great contributor to the community over the years. This donation from Butter Buds will help to keep many of our clients healthy and safe,” according to Taivalkoski. Butter Buds Inc. is a manufacturer of food flavorings located in the Stephen Olsen Industrial Park and operated by the second generation of the Buhler family.
Racine County Food Bank has operated an emergency food program for over 40 years. Thanks to community involvement and efficient staff, the Food Bank supplies the area’s emergency food network with more than 1 Million pounds of food each year! The Racine County Food Bank receives its funding from a broad base of community supporters including United Way of Racine County, The Racine Community Foundation, Racine County’s Emergency Food and Shelter Grant program, faith-based groups, service clubs, companies large and small and individuals throughout the community.
