PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Employees of WPRI 12 and FOX Providence were out and about Thursday and Friday giving back to the community as part of Nexstar’s annual Founder’s Day of Caring.
Nexstar stations in 116 markets across the country teamed up with nonprofit organizations and public agencies to complete a variety of service projects.
“In times of crisis, these organizations mobilize quickly to help those most in need, often making a critical difference in the lives of millions of people every day. But they can’t do it alone. They need help—and that’s where we come in.”
