As part of Founder’s Day, WAVY-TV 10 assisted the Peninsula Foodbank, Meals on Wheels and ForKids. WAVY employees have also been collecting food and monetary donations at the station.

“It’s an opportunity for people from the station to get out in their communities and help in their local communities,” said WAVY News Director Mark Kurtz.

All of Nexstar’s stations took part in outreach activities during Founder’s Day.

“Because it’s important, community matters,” said WAVY General Manager Carol Ward. “People need help, and this is our way to give back, and thank them.”
