Non-Profit Hero of the Week: Sammy's Window/FosterAdopt Connect: Presented by American National

October 15, 2020 - Texas League (TL) - Springfield Cardinals News Release

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - The Springfield Cardinals and American National Insurance are excited to announce Sammy's Window, a part of FosterAdopt Connect, as this week's Non-Profit Heroes award winner, presented by American National Insurance.

Since April, Sammy's Window and FosterAdopt Connect have provided drive-through services for foster families, including partnering with organizations to provide area foster families with extra boxes of produce and dairy products. In addition, foster families who get emergency placements can call and explain their need and Sammy's Window will find them clothing, toys, hygiene supplies and anything else they may need.

"Kids who have experienced abuse and neglect are essential and deserve our community's full support," FosterAdopt Connect Executive Director Allison Gregory said. "COVID-19 was a curveball for all of us, but FosterAdopt Connect's years of innovative experience in serving foster kids and families prepared us to meet the unique and increased needs of this time.'

"We're so grateful for the generous SWMO community for coming alongside us as we continue to give high quality service to more kids and families than ever before all the while ensuring that kids can be safe, stable, and loved."
