$2 from each item sold is being donated to the De Soto Kansas Food Pantry, either in cash or cans, to incorporate an aspect of giving alongside the competitive atmosphere surrounding game. The director at Cosentino’s Price Chopper, located in Shawnee, is working with the Jaguar Leadership Club to maximize the number of cans they can buy with their funds.
