Wilco The Whole LoveHey Wilco fans! When you purchase Wilco‘s new album The Whole Love at Garrett Popcorn Shops, $2 will be donated to the Jane Addams Hull House Association. The CD will be available tomorrow (9/27/11) at our 625 North Michigan Avenue, 26 West Randolph, Navy Pier, and Merchandise Mart locations.

Both Wilco and Garrett Popcorn believe in giving back to the community. We chose Jane Addams Hull House because of their work in improving social conditions for under-served people in Chicago.

The organization provides child care, domestic violence counseling and prevention, economic development, family services, job training, literacy training, senior service, foster care, independent living, and housing assistance for 60,000 children, families and community members each year. Hull House also advocates for social and public policy reforms and initiatives that impact the lives of the men, women, and children in the communities they serve.

Learn more about Jane Addams Hull House Association on their web site and on Facebook.

Rosie O’Donnell stopped by 625 North Michigan Avenue yesterday on her Welcome to Chicago tour of the city. She did a little “work” behind the counter mixing CaramelCrisp and CheeseCorn, signed autographs, and posed for photos with customers.

She inquired about a job as an official taster for Garrett Popcorn, but we think her new show will keep her too busy. Look for the new Rosie O’Donnell Show to debut in October.

See more photos from Rosie’s visit on our Facebook page.
