Community Involvement

Wheat State Telephone proudly supports the communities it serves in a variety of ways. This support ranges from providing jobs with competitive salaries and benefits in rural areas to donating needed goods and services to our local schools.

Wheat State Telephone is an active part of the community serving on committees and volunteering at local festivals and events. We also support the local chapters of the American Cancer Society through corporate sponsorships and in the Relay for Life events. Other groups and organizations that benefit from our corporate sponsorships and the donation of goods or services include: Little League teams, youth football leagues, volunteer fire departments, 4-H clubs, Helping Hands, Lions Clubs, and many others. Some Wheat State Telephone employees are active members in these organizations.

The youth of our communities is one category that receives particular support from Wheat State Telephone. Because our service areas are in an agricultural region, we donate to the county youth fairs and rodeos through corporate sponsorship, auction purchases, and vendor booths. This helps educate our youth and prepare them to thrive economically in these rural areas. We also contribute regularly to our local schools through donations, sponsorships, and participation that benefits the following:

To name a few:

• Udall Fall Festival

• Potwin Watermelon Festival

• Cowley County Humane Society
