Employees Support Local Causes During Nexstar Media Group's 'Founder's Day of Caring'

We’re celebrating at Eyewitness News, as our parent company, Nexstar Broadcasting, is recognizing its’ 21st Anniversary.

As part of our celebration, we and other Nexstar employees are going back to our community roots on Friday, with a Nexstar Founder’s Day of Caring.

It’s our way of saying 'thank you' to the many organizations who work tirelessly every day to make a difference in the lives of people in communities across this great country.

Here in the tri-state, WEHT Local and Local 7 WTVW have selected two organizations where our employees will be lending a helping hand, today.

This year we are partnering with Wessleman's to put on a food drive to benefit Potters Wheel Ministries and The Salvation Army of Evansville.

Evansville's Potter's Wheel Inner City Mission is a ministry whose goal is to change lives among inner-city residents. Once a haven for drug activity, prostitution and crime, the neighborhood surrounding The Potter’s Wheel is undergoing a major transformation and is becoming a quieter and safer environment for families and children. The Potter’s Wheel has programs to provide for basic immediate needs and others designed to educate people to give them the skills needed to help themselves.

The Salvation Army of Evansville is part of a an international movement, which is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. The Salvation Army of Evansville works to feed the community. Their Soup Kitchen feeds over 300 meals to people in need, every day! They endeavor to not let anyone go hungry, but The Salvation Army of Evansville needs the public's help to make their vision a reality.

The food drives will be at all three Wessleman's locations in Evansville and manned by our station volunteers.
