“The Networks of Mid-Missouri and its staff have been instrumental to the Salvation Army, ensuring we have successful campaigns and events,” says Lori Benson, of Columbia’s chapter of the Salvation Army. “They encourage their staff to volunteer in nonprofit events and activities, to be involved in civic groups, and to serve on boards in our community.” Every December, the company spends an entire day ringing the bell for the Red Kettle Campaign, and their sales director, Trent Poindexter, sits on their advisory board for the Salvation Army and serves as chair of the Community Relations and Development Committee. “We’re all familiar with the idea of giving more than we take,” says Curtis Varns, general manager of The Networks of Mid-Missouri. “An extension of that lifestyle comes in the form of volunteering, community service, and charity. It just fits with what we do.”
