Hartsook Highlights Smaller Campaigns of High Value
Smaller campaigns? Because of our company's size and reputation we are frequently asked if we do campaigns under $10 million. The answer is a big "Yes!" This edition of eHartsook highlights smaller campaigns in a three-state region of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Southern Missouri. Here, we feature Tulsa Boys Home, a client for over 10 years, but we have worked with a variety of organizations from the Philbrook Museum, DVIS, Tulsa Ballet, Trinity School and others over the years. You will see our work in NW Arkansas, one of the fastest growing parts of the country, also known as the home of Walmart.  We have been pleased to provide support for children and family initiatives, Boy Scouts and libraries, and recently, we responded to an invitation from Joplin to work with more than a dozen institutions two years after the devastating tornado. Thanks for being a part of the Hartsook network.
