Freddy’s is a company with a mission. When the local Freddy’s opened in October, they choose United Way of Central Kansas to participate in their annual Dine United Campaign. In addition to the Dine United on Nov. 15, Freddy’s gave 10% of custard sales for their first 30 days to United Way of Central Kansas. These two events raised over $2,200 for UWCK and the 23 agencies and community impact programs they fund. Freddy’s will also give a portion of proceeds from Dec. 20, to help bring Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to Great Bend and Hoisington. For more information about Dolly’s program, go to or UWCK Facebook page.
“We are thrilled to partner with Freddy’s, their staff are a joy to work with and want to make a positive impact on our local community by giving back.” said Julie Bugner-Smith.
