Weather Guarantee: $2,000 Check Presentation To March of Dimes
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WRSP) —
December is the season of giving, and Newschannel 20 along with Green Family Stores continue to give back to our community with the weather guarantee.
Tuesday, we gave $2,000 to the March of Dimes, our charity of the month.
March of Dimes funds lifesaving research and programs and works to end premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality. Money raised in our local area goes to local hospitals.
"All the money that we raise [has] really been put towards finding what causes prematurity," said Shannon Mathis, March of Dimes executive director of development. "1 in 10 babies are born too early."
"We have been recipients of seeing the work of the March of Dimes up front and close and personal to us," said Mylas Copeland, general manager of Green Toyota/Audi/Volkwagon. "And so anytime we have an opportunity to partner with the March of Dimes, we want to jump out in front."
Our weather guarantee charity for December is Frontiers International.
