United Way is making the rounds to learn what the community needs to be successful.
United Way of Greater Topeka's campaign chairman Scott Griffith wants to visit each of the United Way's 35 agencies.
He started today with six of them, wrapping up at Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Scott says he's already learned a lot.
"The need is even greater this year than it's ever been. I think with rising gas prices and rising food prices now, those that are less fortunate are in greater need. It's impacting them a lot more than I had anticipated," said Scott Griffith, 2008 United Way Campaign Chair.
Griffith says volunteers are hard at work right now preparing for the United Way campaign, which kicks off August 27th.
