SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — KOLR10 employees will be turning in their broadcasting skills for dog leashes and paintbrushes Friday. It’s our Founder’s Day of Caring.
It’s in celebration of our parent company, Nexstar Broadcasting’s, 20th anniversary. The 4,500 employees of Nexstar at stations around the country, will join together in a day of giving to the communities we serve by volunteering at local organizations. The goal is to donate 20,000 hours of volunteer time.
KOLR10 and KOZL have chosen the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri and Habitat for Humanity as our project charities.
KOLR10’s Brennon Gurley is starting off the day at the Humane Society with director Donna Casamento. We’re talking about how vital volunteers are to keeping this organization running smoothly.
Brennon: Donna, what appreciation do you have for volunteers that come out here and help assist you?
Brennon: What kinds of things do volunteers do for you?
Thank you donna and if you would like to volunteer here at the humane society we will have a link our website at ozarks first dot com. http://www.swh.org/
KOLR10 employees will also volunteer Friday with Habitat for Humanity, painting a house under construction in north Springfield.
