Miracle League receives more money, sponsors

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The City of Jonesboro has received more money and sponsors for the Miracle League.

At Tuesday night's regularly scheduled council meeting, the council accepted a $10,000 grant from the East Arkansas Planning & Development District.

A number of resolutions were also passed for contracts with local businesses for sign sponsorship at the field.

Sharon Turman with Jonesboro Parks and Recreation told Region 8 News that this just adds to the many blessings they've received lately.

"Sonic came through with a $4,200 donation so it has just been an awesome Christmas season for the Miracle League," Turman said.

During the Christmas season, John 3:16 Ministries wrapped presents at the Mall at Turtle Creek for donations.

Turman said on Friday, they'll learn just how much money was raised from that.

The Miracle League opened in October. The season will start in April but Turman said the playground is open now and any and all children are allowed to play on it.

If you're a business interested in having a sponsorship sign at the ball field, Turman said there is room left. Contact Turman with the City of Jonesboro for more information.
