Frontiers International Surprised With $3,000 Donation
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Newschannel 20 along with Green Family Stores continue to help local organizations through our weather guarantee.
During December, our accurate forecasts raised $1,800 for Frontiers International, which helps serve the Springfield community.
During the MLK breakfast in Springfield, we surprised the organization with a check presentation.
The Green Family Stores donated an additional $1,200, giving Frontiers International a $3,000 gift.
"The number of scholarships that they do every single year in helping young men as they start to take the next level," Mylas Copeland, general manager of Green Toyota, VW, Audi, said. "They do mentoring programs, they teach people how to interview, they teach them how to write resumes, they teach them just how to interact with the general public. So this small amount of money I think will be more of a grassroots effort to allow them to continue the things that they do."
Our accurate forecasts in January will benefit Sparc, which helps those with disabilities by enabling them to successfully live, learn, work and socialize in the community.
