A Springfield social service agency has been saved from the brink of closure but it’s not out of the woods yet.
Steady declines in grants and donations have cut deeply into revenue for the Boys and Girls Club of Central Illinois. The situation got so bad that the agency couldn’t pay its utilities. But now the Green Family Stores have stepped in with 45 hundred dollars to pay the gas and electric bills.
Owner Todd Green also plans to purchase more needed equipment for the agency and he’s urging other businesses to also step up and help the troubled organization.
