Community Stories

Kansas Health Foundation

"Thrive helps us thrive! We couldn’t ask for a more engaged, thoughtful and creative partner in our philanthropic work. Our collaboration to launch Hunger Free Kansas models they type of effective multi-sector action needed to solve tough challenges. And to top it off, sometimes they bring Pop’d Hearts from HomeGrown!"
Ed O'Malley, CEO, Kansas Health Foundation

Music Theatre Wichita

"Thrive has for many years supported Music Theatre Wichita’s efforts to take care of those who work so hard – both onstage and behind-the-scenes – to create Broadway-quality shows for Kansans. Thrive and Music Theatre Wichita are united in our belief that treating employees with respect, kindness, and food serves the broader mission of impacting our community."
Angela Cassette, Managing Director, Music Theatre Wichite


"Gracious.  Kind.  Intentional.  Community Care.
These are just a few of the words that come to mind when describing HopeNet’s experience with Thrive.  When we have reached out to partner to make an impact on lives in our great city of Wichita, Thrive has answered in the affirmative going above and beyond what has been asked and desired.  Their heart for 'the work' encourages us to stay the course in helping others with their transformational stories."
Jo Lynn Bright, Director of Community Impact, HopeNet

Stand Together Foundation

"Partnering with Thrive has been a game changer for our philanthropic strategy.  They bring their world class business expertise and knack for developing people into the social sector which is starving for innovations that actually work.

The social sector has a lot to learn from the hospitality industry, and Thrive RG shows what’s possible when those worlds come together. Thrive’s Restaurants are hubs for empowerment and we love how they apply their win-win business principles to help people improve their lives inside and outside their four walls.

Thrive shows win-win in action, both in how they operate their restaurants and how they engage the community philanthropically. Their business expertise and knack for developing people makes for powerful cross-sector impact."
Joe Woodward, Director, Wichita Operations at Stand Together Foundation
