Compass for Kids, the after-school program and summer learning camp for Springfield homeless and low-income children, has been awarded a $25,000 grant from State Farm insurance. The Springfield nonprofit is one of 40 groups nationwide awarded $25,000 grants from State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist program. This is the third year Compass has won the grant, awarded to groups that garner the most online votes from their supporters. The grant will be used to fund the Compass backpack feeding program, providing weekly food for more than 300 students. Within Springfield School District 186, 63% of students are low-income and 3% are homeless.
