WVNY/WFFF, along with its 169 sister stations across the United States, is giving back to the community Friday to celebrate Nexstar’s Founder’s Day of Caring.
Across Local 22 & Local 44, employees from both on-air and behind the scenes are volunteering at the Clinton County Fairgrounds in Plattsburgh on Friday. Our crew is helping the American Cancer Society set-up for its annual Relay for Life event, which takes place on Saturday morning.
Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser, according to the organization.
Crews will help the organization set-up an obstacle course and a survivor’s hall. Employees will also help set-up several hundred chairs surrounding the main stage.
Nexstar employees are known for giving back to their communities; the company encourages that commitment by giving employees up to four paid hours of time off to perform a charitable service in their local communities.
