WICHITA, Kan., Thursday, Apr. 16, 2020 — In an effort to assist those in the community whose lives have been financially disrupted by COVID-19, INTRUST Bank has made a contribution of $120,000 to United Way of the Plains. Funds will be used to provide support for the payment of rent, utilities and other basic needs for residents who have been negatively affected by the coronavirus.
“We are navigating uncharted waters, and while this is new to all of us, helping our community in times of need is not,” said Charlie Chandler, chairman and CEO, INTRUST Bank. “We’re here through the good times and the bad, and together, we will all come out of this stronger.”
INTRUST Bank and its 900+ employees company-wide are significant supporters of United Way’s annual campaign in all of its communities. With a history of giving going back to the founding of the United Way in the 1920s, INTRUST believes it can only be as successful as the communities where its employees live and work.
“Once again INTRUST has stepped forward as a leader in helping our community when the need is the greatest,” said Patrick J. Hanrahan, president & CEO, United Way of the Plains. “We are honored and blessed to receive this wonderful gift which will help many who are in difficult circumstances right now.”
