Weather Guarantee Raises $2,000 For Crime Stoppers Of Sangamon And Menard Counties
Springfield, ILL. (WRSP) —
As we kick off a new month, the Fox Storm Team is looking back at our Weather Guarantee for the month of July.
Fox Illinois and the Green Family Stores is donating $2,000 to Crime Stoppers of Sangamon and Menard County.
Crime Stoppers will be the money exclusively toward tips.
If you have tips that leads to the arrest of a wanted criminal, you could see some of that money yourself.
The Crime Stoppers tip-line allows you to stay anonymous, and police say some crimes may go unsolved without those valuable tips.
"It takes tips from the public and the cooperation from the public to get information to the police and without this, it just wouldn't happen. These criminals would still be on the streets," said Springfield Police Officer Michael Badger.
"We have a passion for our law enforcement and our first responders. It's a very crucial time, and it's a tough time for a lot of these and for us, again, to be able to give something back to them, hopefully it'll go a long way," said Myles Copeland, a Green Family Store General Manager.
In the month of August, our accurate forecasting will raise money for Girls on the Run.
