Weather Guarantee: $2,000 for Lawrence Avenue Food Pantry
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Earlier Thursday, Storm Team 20 along with Green Family Stores presented our Weather Guarantee check to our charity of the month.
Our accurate forecasts raised $2,000 for the Lawrence Avenue Food Pantry in Springfield.
Lawrence Avenue Food Pantry serves about 60 families a week, and it's all volunteer based.
The money the food pantry received will be going towards fresh and healthy food options, which are in high-demand.
"This is going to be real instrumental in helping us to provide healthy food for our clients," said James Moy, Lawrence Avenue Food Pantry Director. "Fresh fruits and vegetables are out now."
"Todd is very generous," said Dennis Kabbes, Green Nissan General Manager. "He listens to his managers; he listens to his sales people. We tell him the community needs this and he's willing to help."
The charity we are supporting this month is Kumler United Methodist Church Outreach Ministries.
