Central National Bank in Junction City has presented a check for $27,448.03 to the United Way of Junction City - Geary County in support of their 2022 campaign. Bank staff spent October raising funds for United Way.
"It is a true joy to be a part of this team and lead the efforts of our employees," said Amanda Rolfs, Marketing Manager and captain of the United Way team at Central National Bank. "Of course, we have fun coming together for the good of Junction City, but my colleagues also recognize the true impact their efforts have on the well-being of our community. I think that's why they continue to step up, year after year, to make a difference in Geary County."
2021 marks the fifteenth year in a row that Central National Bank has been named a Platinum Pacesetter, a designation given to organizations who raise over $15,000 in funds for the campaign.
"As a community bank, we recognize the importance of giving back to our community, " said Lindsey Snider, Central National Bank, Junction City President. " Each year the staff does a tremendous job with the United Way campaign here at Central National Bank, Junction City. This year's campaign total of $27,448.03 was a huge team effort."
"While the bank itself makes a corporate donation, most of the total money raised is directly attributable to the efforts and generosity of our staff, either from their personal contributions through our staff payroll deduction program, or from the special activities and events held during our internal United Way campaign, " said Snider. "As a business that has been in Junction City and Geary County for the past 137 years, we want to assist with programs that improve this community and help its citizens. The United Way of Junction City - Geary County provides a tremendous service to this Community."
Snider thanked the campaign team who organized the Bank's internal fundraising campaign, and all of the staff who supported it.
The team who led the bank efforts this year consisted of: Danielle Christensen, Pam Diekmann, Lacy Osbourn, April Josserand, Lindsey Snider, Scott Rock, Andrew Haynes, Joel Poole and Amanda Rolfs.
