SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (Edited News Release) — The Community Foundation of the Ozarks (CFO) provided an emergency grant of $5,560.49 to support repairs to Habitat for Humanity of Springfield after thieves stole catalytic converters from vehicles.
Habitat for Humanity of Springfield has been a longtime nonprofit partner of the CFO, which works with donors, nonprofit agencies, affiliates and professional advisors to build and administer charitable assets throughout its 58-county service region.
