Giving Tuesday Heroes: Local reporters and media

Written by Katie Fourney    on December 14, 2020    in
On December 1st, the metro showed up in a big way, almost doubling giving from 2019’s Giving Tuesday. (Read the full results, here.) How did this happen, you ask? A key ingredient to this powerful day was overwhelming support from local media: every tv station, radio station, newspaper and more.

These partners deserve the thanks of our whole community:
  • Houck contributed queen-sized bus ads
  • Lamar and Link contributed outdoor billboard space
  • KETV NewsWatch 7, WOWT 6 News and KMTV 3 News Now contributed PSA commercials and covered the news story
  • Cox Media contributed PSA commercials
