The Hansen-Spear GIVE BACK program is our way of supporting and highlighting local non-profit charities that work to enhance life in the Quincy area. This monthly donation that we share online is a small part of how we GIVE BACK to our local community.
We always encourage input and suggestions for our GIVE BACK donations. A part of this process is learning about organizations that need support to continue to provide services in the Quincy community. We hope that spotlighting a charity each month will help increase the awareness of each organization through social media.

In the picture above, I am presenting the GIVE BACK donation to Connor Wolf (Liberty High School Student Council President), Jessica Kearns (student council freshman representative), and Mrs. Karen Carper (Liberty High School Principal).
On the 25th of November a group of Liberty High School students traveled to the Washington, Illinois area to help with the clean up after the tornado. Since all students could not attend, but wanted to help, the LHS Student Council raised money through bucket donations and a bake sale. The council was able to send $578.00 to Washington Middle School to help replace book bags, musical instruments, books and supplies that were destroyed by the storm. With the GIVE BACK Donation from Hansen-Spear Funeral Home, they will be able to send additional money to Washington Middle School. The council will continue to collect funds and help with the rebuilding of Washington. More students are currently planning a trip to help with the clean up during Christmas break.
The need to help Washington, Illinois came with the concern of our principal, Mrs. Karen Carper. Mrs. Carper grew up in Washington and still has a number of family members and friends residing in the area. A number of students also have relatives and connections to the area.
October 2013 – THE GIVE BACK Contest will resume in November 2013. In the meantime, Visit or Facebook Page and LIKE Us to Help Support the Blessing Breast Center. We will Donate $1.00 to the Blessing Breast Center for each new fan through the end of October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
