Lansing, MI.: More people are struggling to feed their families. Food banks and community kitchens across the area are stretched thin, trying to meet the need.
This is where you come in.
Mid-Michigan’s 4th Annual “Day of Giving” to focus on feeding the hungry.
Together, we can make an impact in our community by serving this most basic need.
A need - that must be met. The best way to do it - is with cash. One dollar ($1) can purchase FIVE (5) meals. Non-perishable goods will be accepted as well.
Beginning at Noon on Friday, December 10th, WLNS will dedicate its resources to meeting the needs of the hungry in our community, leading up to a 1 hour special from 7 – 8PM. Dean Trailways is providing a bus at WLNS – to stuff full of non- perishable food. Volunteers will accept donations at the WLNS TV 6 Studios, 2820 East Saginaw Street, Lansing, and Allegiance Health, 205 North East Avenue in Jackson. A Phone bank to accept cash donations will be operating between 12 Noon and 8PM, and on line donations can be made at www.wlns.com.
Mid-Michigan’s “Day of Giving” is made possible by Auto-Owners Insurance.
Radio station partners - Q106 and 92.1 will also support the efforts, along with Adams Outdoor, Williams Auto World and LEPFA. Major support has already come in from Accident Fund Insurance Company and Tripp’s Auto Body.
Non-Profit Agency partners include: The Capital Area United Way, The United Way of Jackson County, Eaton County United Way, Livingston County United Way, the Salvation Army in Lansing, Mid-Michigan Food Bank, American Red Cross – Livingston County, Greater Lansing Food Bank, Salvation Army – Jackson County, Food Bank of South Central Michigan and the American Red Cross – Mid-Michigan Chapter.

MOBILE, Ala. — A man accused of having sex with a miniature horse has retained an attorney with the moniker "Cowboy Bob."
Eric Easley is charged with animal cruelty after an incident in the miniature horse's pen. The owner says the animal was tied up and sexually assaulted. Easley told NBC station WPMI earlier this month that he didn't have sex with the horse.
"You can accuse a bishop in Boston of bastardy, but that don't mean he did anything. You can get a ham sandwich and indict it, but that don't mean the ham sandwich was guilty of anything, except being a bad ham sandwich," Cowboy Bob Clark, who is representing Easley, said Tuesday.
Authorities found the Wilmer man's wallet in the horse's stable, but Easley told WPMI that he lost the wallet while trying to help an injured deer.
