94.9 WDKB and First National Bank presented this week’s #HometownHero award to:

Tonya Sheehan

Tonya was nominated by Katie Norris-Geer. Tonya runs ‘Fundraising by the Buckets’ which sells 5-gallon buckets of laundry/dish soaps and cleaning products as a way to raise money for local groups, teams, and organizations! She was one of the first to reach out to Taking Care of Our Caretakers DeKalb CO asking to help. Tonya then put down $500 at Rosita’s Mexican Restaurant in DeKalb for the group to use in those early days. Ever since, she has worked her tail off to keep supporting the campaign. Through Fundraising by the Buckets, she has raised $3500 for Taking Care of Our Caretakers. She is now also helping to support the Taking Care of Our Caretakers group in Sauk Valley. She has already provided them with over $1,500!
