6th Annual Mid-Michigan “Day of Giving”
Thursday, December 13, 2012
Lansing, MI.: WLNS - TV 6, along with several media partners will dedicate a day to giving – to help local charities provide basic needs during the holidays and throughout the year. The station encourages viewers across Mid-Michigan to join in this effort.
We all know that financial hardships continue to plague mid-Michigan residents. Families are losing their homes, and looking for basic assistance at food pantries and shelters throughout the area. Many are families with children who need help, and that’s where you fit in.
Rally your friends, co-workers and classmates to help support the less fortunate. Hold a clothing drive, a food drive or collect donations in your school or workplace. Encourage everyone to make a difference – right here, right now.
Non-Profit partners include: the United Way, the Salvation Army, the American Red Cross, and the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Each of these agencies work to impact the lives of those who are in need; women, children and families who have come on hard times for whatever reason.
Volunteers from these organizations will accept donations at the WLNS TV 6 Studios, 2820 East Saginaw Street, Lansing, and Allegiance Health, 205 North East Avenue in Jackson. Additional drop-off locations are planned in Charlotte and St Johns.
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. A $5 text to give option will also be available.
The 6th Annual “Day of Giving” will be held on Thursday, December 13th. With your help, we can impact the lives of those who are struggling to provide for their families during the holiday season and throughout the year.
