Storm Team, Green Family Stores donate $2K to Springfield Urban League
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
In this month's weather guarantee, the Storm Team along with Green Family Stores is donating $2,000 to the Springfield Urban League.
Their mission is to empower families who may not be economically stable enough to afford necessities.
In this case, the Urban League is buying car seats so that those families have peace of mind that their children will be safe, and Green Family is doing their part too.
"We provide family support, we provide health, nutrition, and our families, any event we have, any event opportunities we have for our families they're very blessed and grateful to receive," Head Start director Betty Edwards said.
"First and third of every Thursday, we have a car seat inspection for free at the North Hyundai facility," said Green Hyundai general manager Mike Quimby.
For the month of February, they're raising money towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
