Lincoln, NE -- The 10/11 and NBC Nebraska Can Care-a-Van will officially get underway with a Kick Off event in Lincoln on Friday, June 3.

All donations collected during the Kick Off event will benefit the Food Bank of Lincoln. The 70th & Pioneers Hy-Vee will also accept monetary donations at the registers to make donating even more convenient for shoppers.
