Community Foundation of Southwest Missouri Donates to Miracle Field

Yesterday at the Joplin Athletic Complex, the Community Foundation of Southwest Missouri helped take a major step with a $20,000 grant to the Joplin Daybreak Rotary Foundation for its Will Norton Miracle Field and Playground, which will allow children with disabilities to take part in sports and outdoor recreation.

The grant is from the foundation’s Joplin Recovery Fund, and goes to the field named for Will Norton, one of the first victims killed in the May 22, 2011 tornado. In addition to the $20,000 grant, the CFSWMO also promised $25,000 in matching funds to the Joplin Daybreak Rotary Foundation to help with future contributions as they continue raising funds to make the Miracle Field a reality.
