Weather Guarantee: Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault Receives $2,000
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Thursday, April 6 we took a look back at our Weather Guarantee for the month of March.
Green Family Stores along with our storm team presented a $2,000 check to the Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault.
The center acts as a 24-hour rape crisis hotline as well as counseling, prevention, and legal advocacy.
Every dollar counts and the work they do can hit very close to home for so many families.
"It's unfortunate that they haven't passed a budget yet, but we're still hopeful and we want to do everything we can to help victims of sexual assault," said Shelley Vaughan, executive director of Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault.
"...And it's a thing that can hit personally with me," Mike Quimby with Green Hyundai said. "I have three daughters, and it's a very important thing."
Walk A Mile in Her Shoes will be on April 22.
Our charity for the weather guarantee for the month of April is Lawrence Avenue Community Service.
