TOPEKA, Kan. – During Capitol Federal’s ribbon cutting ceremony held Tuesday, March 4, for its 47th office, 4th in the greater Kansas City Metro area at 4242 Main Street in Midtown, Capitol Federal® Foundation presented a large replica check of an $8,700 gift to Operation Breakthrough, Kansas City, MO. Susan Stanton, CEO of Operation Breakthrough, accepted the check from Brian Bruns, vice president-branch manager of Capitol Federal’s Midtown branch.
Bruns stated, “Capitol Federal is pleased to provide this gift to Operation Breakthrough in recognition of Capitol Federal’s newest True Blue® location. With our move into the Midtown, Capitol Federal wanted to make an impact, and what better way than to support the children. As a part of the Midtown community, we are happy to extend this gift to further Operation Breakthrough facility improvements, including outdoor playground equipment, indoor play equipment and medical kits. This gift is in appreciation of all Operation Breakthrough does in helping our local children, providing them with an excellent start in quality care and education, thus furthering the development of an even stronger Midtown community.”

We thank Capitol Federal for your generous support, a gift that will serve the community and further our mission ‘to help build our future…one child at a time’.”
