Our Heart

We're passionate about giving back to our community.

We're fortunate to call Springfield, Mo. home. That's why we do what we can to give back to organizations in our area that work to enrich our community. In 2017, we donated $27,000 to several of those entities, including Missouri State University, Habitat for Humanity, The Kitchen, Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks, and the Price Cutter Charity Gold Tournament.
