TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- United Way Campaign Ambassadors and their sponsors were honored at its annual appreciation breakfast.
13 campaign ambassadors were recognized for their time and work they have put in during the last several months for the United Way campaign.
Also in attendance were companies who sponsored the ambassadors and agencies which receive funding from the United Way.
Lisa Schmitt, an ambassador from the State of Kansas said, "I lived here my entire life and thought I had a pretty good idea of the needs in our own community and i thought I was pretty giving with my time and this experience really made me realize that I'm not doing enough. There are people in our own backyard, there are people right beside me that need help and I'm going to do everything I can to help those people."
The ambassadors allow the United Way the ability to reach out to companies in the Topeka region.
