Weather Guarantee: Sparc Receives $2,000 Donation
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
As we start a new month, we look back at our weather guarantee for the month of January.
Thursday, our storm team along with Green Family Stores presented a $2,000 check to Sparc.
The mission of Sparc is to enrich the lives of adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
There's a residential and vocational program that encourages the people Sparc works with to contribute to society and to engage in the work force -- based on their skill level.
"We get up and go to work every day, we expect the individuals we support to do the same. So they go to work and that's where they work, at their highest capacity," Denise Schainker, Sparc director of development.
"Sparc has always been one of our favorites," Mike Quimby, general manager of Green Hyundai, said. "We have one of their vocational people come out daily, he's just part of the family."
The charity of the month for February is the Underground Railroad Committee.
