Ameren Donates Thousands to Urban League
A local charity received a large sum of money Monday to help continue the work it does in the capital city.
Ameren Illinois donated $10,000 to the Springfield Urban League.
The Urban League is using the check to fund programs that provide after-school services for at-risk youth, to prepare them for the future.
It offers life-skills training, tutoring, and introduces students to college options.
"One of the core values of Ameren Illinois is to be involved in our communities, and we understand that having a vibrant community that's working well, well-educated, involved, and have our co-workers involved, really strengthens the economy of our entire city and region," Scott Wiseman of Ameren said.
Ameren Illinois has a longstanding relationship with the Springfield Urban League and believes in their mission to "empower the community."
