Blue in the Community - United Way
Employees in the Topeka, Salina, Wichita and Hutchinson offices choose to Live United by conducting solicitation activities for the annual United Way campaign. Volunteer teams work to find innovative and creative ways to show employees the benefits of contributing to the many agencies that comprise the United Way. The company offers payroll deduction for those who do contribute.
