(Springfield, MO) – No family should go without food for the holidays and Springfield business leaders make sure this doesn't’t happen by donating $45,670 to provide Holiday food (Thanksgiving & Christmas) through the Crosslines Holiday Center. These gifts come at a crucial time to meet the need in Greene County. “We are so grateful for the generosity of business partners and foundations.
This exemplifies the kindness in our community to help families in need,” stated Mark Struckhoff, Executive Director of Council of Churches of the Ozarks, “It truly is a community effort with everyone from churches to children helping and these leadership gifts are inspiring and humbling.”
Employees came together at Mercy and John Q. Hammons Hotels to raise funds to help meet the need in our community. Mercy’s Force for Good campaign recently raised $10,000 for Crosslines and John Q. Hammons Hotels presented Crosslines with a donation for $9,670. The Law Firm of Neale & Newman provided a $10,000 leadership gift to assist Crosslines. Care to Learn pledged a $10,000 gift to specifically provide food for children that attend Springfield Public Schools while the Roy W. Slusher Foundation granted $6,000 to help with Holiday food and the Crosslines mobile food pantry.
It is estimated that Crosslines will be providing Christmas food baskets for 4,000 people in Greene County. Crosslines will distribute the Christmas food baskets to pre-qualified applicants today at Pathways United Methodist Church. For more information visit CCOzarks.org
