We have partnered with Join The Movement (JTM) for their 1st Annual Fundraiser to strengthen and educate our community against Human Trafficking. The fundraiser is taking place on January 11, 2021, which is also National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

Join the Movement is a 501c3 Non-Profit with the mission of bringing awareness and education to not only Walworth County, but all over the State of Wisconsin and the entire Midwest as human trafficking is present in all communities. They have a well-rounded program to train all staff at local police departments and specialize in rural community awareness.

The Fundraiser will feature Guest Speaker, Theresa Flores LSW, MA. Ms. Flores is the Best Selling Author of "The Slave Across The Street". She is a survivor of human trafficking and has become one of the country's most prominent advocates related to human trafficking awareness.

A Silent Auction with proceeds going towards JTM will also be held during the Fundraiser, which is being held at the Lake Lawn Resort.

The Kunes Family Foundation will match every dollar donated to local food pantries in December

Dec 2, 2021


We founded the Kunes Family Foundation to give back to the communities we serve.

The families that suffer from food insecurity are generally not eligible for federal nutrition programs. Therefore, local food banks and other programs must provide additional assistance.

We have partnered with local food banks in December to aid families struggling with food insecurity in their communities. To help those who are struggling with hunger, we will match every dollar donated.

"It is our privilege to have served many of our communities for more than three decades and we consider it our responsibility to find ways to give back each year." said Gregg Kunes, "By partnering locally, we are providing more food and meals to families and individuals in our communities struggling with where their next meal will come from. We have the potential to feed thousands of people through this donation event taking place across our 36 stores throughout the Midwest."
