Two years ago when FunkyChunky lost its Founder, Ronni Feuer, to breast cancer the folks there created a flavor to honor her memory – Ronni’s Popcorn. Ten percent of the proceeds from sales of that flavor are donated to a local organization called Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation. In 2013, FunkyChunky raised a total of $2,085.64. The company presented the check to Hope Check on May 22, 2014.
Hope Chest is a Minnesota based company that works to relieve local breast cancer patients and their family of financial distress so they can focus on what is more important—healing. With its Hope Chest Emergency Assistance Program, the agency provides the quickest access to help with the most urgent needs of breast cancer patients by paying rent, utilities, childcare and transportation to treatment. In addition the agency delivers Hope Chest Meals that Heal for the mom and age-appropriate food for all the children.
