TruStage employees volunteer in Pawnee Rock

PAWNEE ROCK — TruStage employees volunteered to a Community Impact Day on May 24, pitching in to help with the Pawnee Rock Revitalization Project. The CUNA Mutual Group recently announced the company rebranding to the name TruStage.

“As we celebrate our new name, we are living into our brand promise of ‘people helping people’ – and the belief that a brighter financial future should be accessible to everyone, no matter where they are starting from,” said Laura Straub, marketing consultant.

“At TruStage, we focus on people, always working hard to deliver on the promises we make to them — ultimately building a better organization, a more honest and inclusive financial industry, and a stronger society,” she said.

As CUNA Mutual, the company’s Great Bend campus was located at 1809 24th St. until last year, when the property was acquired by Great Bend USD 428.

“Great Bend area employees may no longer have a physical building (since that change) in December, but we have employees who remain passionate about paying it forward within our community – the place in which we all call home,” Straub said. On May 24, TruStage employees gathered together to make a difference in Pawnee Rock and its park revitalization efforts.

Volunteers did landscaping and painting in the park. “Thanks to discounts offered from Kelly’s Garden Sense on landscaping plants and Sherwin Williams paint supplies, our Community Impact Day budget will go a little further,” she said. “TruStage is contributing $10,000 to the entire effort and any monies we have left over from our park beautification work will be donated towards making the new play area a safer place – and softer landing with the rubber-manufactured playground chips.”
