DENVER (KDVR) — The team from FOX31 and Channel 2 — from the faces you know on-air, to the people behind the scenes — took time to give back to the community on Friday. It was all to mark a special day for our parent company, Nexstar Media Group, as employees from across the country volunteered on “Founder’s Day of Caring.”

Volunteers from KDVR and KWGN were at three Denver-area organizations:

  • A Precious Child
    • Volunteers help process items at A Precious Child’s donation center, so they can be given to children and families in need.
  • The Haven of Hope
    • Volunteers sort donations and help in the dining room, among other support, at this day shelter.
  • The Right Step
    • Volunteers help with a variety of needs at this therapeutic riding program for people with a range of physical, emotional, behavioral and cognitive disabilities.

Members of the FOX31 and Channel 2, along with employees in Nexstar’s 116 television markets across the country, are given a paid half-day to volunteer.
