Thank you, Manhattan.

You helped put $280,000 into the hands of our favorite local businesses. And, $251,000 was matched in the form of grocery assistance for those in need.

When asked to step up, you all invested a half-million dollars+ into those who need it most.

In our home community, we’ve seen how actions necessary to protect vulnerable populations have caused economic harm, especially for our neighbors who work in the hospitality, retail and service industries. We love living and working in a lively college town and we recognize that our quality of life depends on these hardworking people. They know our names, welcome our families, and serve us with a smile. By closing dining rooms and bars, and rescheduling conferences and weddings, they’re still serving the Manhattan community by protecting those community members who are older and who have underlying health concerns.

We believe that as a marketing agency, we have a responsibility to serve our community in times of crisis and recognize that we have hired a team of thinkers and makers who are uniquely qualified for creative problem solving. Out of our core belief in service, our team at 502 has partnered with the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation (GMCF) to create MHK Together, a program that supports the businesses and employees who have prioritized our community’s safety.

Our agency is located in Kansas because of the wonderful people who make Manhattan special. Our team is supporting MHK Together because we look forward to celebrating the day when this pandemic passes—and it will—with our whole community, standing strong together.
