Dodge City, Kansas, 12-28-22 —United is pleased to announce the Kansas Soldiers’ Home (KSH) at Fort Dodge as the 2022 recipient of its annual holiday giving program. The KSH offers independent living, assisted living, and long-term care for over 80 veterans.
United employees donated non-perishable food, clothing, and other household items that will be made available to veterans free of charge in the resident store. United also matched employees’ monetary donations for a total monetary donation of $2,000; these funds will be used to provide entertainment, activities, and outings for residents.
“United is committed to giving back to our local communities and providing support to many important local organizations,” said United General Manager/CEO Todd Houseman. “Matching employees’ monetary donations this holiday season allows United to double the impact of this support for our veterans. We are proud to partner with the Kansas Soldiers’ Home and are grateful for the generosity of our employees in supporting our veterans this holiday season and throughout the year!”
On December 21, 2022, Administration Manager Mike Salmans, Administrative Assistant Mary Beth Helfrich, and Marketing Coordinator Luke Bunker presented KSH Administrator Ron Friess with boxes of donated goods and a $2,000 check. “On behalf of all residents and staff, we are very grateful for the support of United!” said Friess.
