Yes, we just found out about this - but in our defense, we've had a rough week.
All of the local TV stations in the Cincinnati market - including WXIX 19/Newport, WCPO 9/Cincinnati, WKRC 12/Cincinnati, WLWT 5/Cincinnati, WSTR 64/Cincinnati, and WCET 48/Cincinnati, are working together this morning to help feed hungry families area-wide.
It's appropriately being called "Cincinnati Television Together" and it benefits Freestore Foodbank, Brighton Center, and Shared Harvest Foodbank.
There is currently a phonebank ongoing as of this post (which we just heard is at the WCET studios on Central Parkway downtown), which will be open until 12 midnight tonight (Thursday). The phone number is 1-800-808-0445 (and yes, it DOES go to the phonebank, we've double checked the information being shown on TV).
You can also donate by clicking this link, OR going to your local Bigg's, Kroger or Remke Markets store, and make a donation at the register anytime today through Sunday.
We give all six stations major kudos, for remembering the community they serve and hope they'll do things like this more often as a group. After all, they all do serve ONE community...a good portion of which is suffering in this economy...
