In support of our Champaign community, we give to several local charities in many creative ways. Each fall, we have a food drive to support the Caring Kitchen food bank. The Caring Kitchen is a local Champaign county community outreach ministry “based on the Bible and motivated by the love of God.” Through this partnership, our goal is to aid in its mission to provide services to all people without discrimination.
We are a sponsor for the Fearless 5k, which raises funds in Champaign county for families dealing with life-threatening illnesses like childhood cancer. This race is hosted by Running4Life, a non-profit organization. Since Running4Life was formed, more than 20 children and their families have received assistance. We are also sponsoring the Cable Country Classic 5k, which supports the purchase of playground and equipment and improvements in the Cable community park area.
Apart from supporting our community’s charities through volunteer work and monetary donations, we also have the privilege of sponsoring ads for non-profit organizations that are played on the local radio station, WPKO. These non-profit organizations include Running4Life, CRSI (Champaign Residential Services, Inc), Animal Welfare League, Suicide Prevention Coalition, Community Christmas, The Cancer Association, Barely Used Pets, Mercy Hospital, and the Community Thrift Store.
