Sunflower Broadband donates funds to school foundation
Sunflower Broadband has donated $885 to the Tonganoxie School Foundation from its Sunflower for Schools promotion that took place in November.
The Sunflower for Schools promotion promised to donate money to the school foundation for every new Sunflower Broadband telephone customer in November and also for current Sunflower customers who upgraded their service during the month. Sunflower Broadband director of sales and support, Joe Ryan, presented the check to Richard Erickson, superintendent.
"We are truly a local company, and quality schools benefit everyone," said Patrick Knorr, Sunflower Broadband's general manager. "Several of our employees live in Tonganoxie, so it is only fitting for us to help the Tonganoxie School Foundation."
