Grocery Shopping For Good: Eyewitness News Celebrates Nexstar Founders Day of Caring

Eyewitness News, like many other Nexstar stations across the country are celebrating Founders Day of our parent company by giving back to the community.

Friday marks the second annual Nexstar Founders Day of Caring.

Eyewitness News was at three Wesselman locations today taking donations for this year's chosen charities, The Potter's Wheel and Salvation Army.

Wesselmans on Sonntag Avenue was bringing in a lot of donations, and along the way our very own Meterologist Stacey May was able to make a good friend.

When Larry Robinson ran up to Wesselmans to pick up some cat food Friday morning, meeting one of his favorite faces in the Tri-State wasn't in the forecast.

Robinson describes his reaction to seeing his favorite meterologist Stacey May outside the grocery store.

Robinson said,"oh wow I knew who she was and that and I like to see her do the weather and shes pretty good at it."

May says meeting Robinson was a major highlight of her day, and she enjoyed getting out of the weather center for a couple hours, mixing it up by being out and about in the weather than just telling viewers about it.

"Well our community is what its all about, that's why we do this our viewers are so important to us, so anything we can do we're going to get out there and do it, and actually getting out and seeing the viewers is very fun for us."

An anything but ordinary trip to the grocery store for Robinson, also opening the door to do some real good in the Tri-State. all it took was picking up an extra can or two while going down your grocery list.

Robinson said, "it does give you a little bit better feeling and its not like it has to be outlandish."

Pastor Mike Ballard of The Potter's Wheel said he could use all the extra help he can get.

Ballard said,"its a big job we normally feed between 250-300 people on Tuesday and up to 300 on Saturday so it takes a lot of work."
