On December 6, Nexstar Broadcasting’s WLNS-TV (Lansing) held it’s the 11th annual Day of Giving, collecting non-perishable items like cereal and canned soup.

All donations went to help those who are struggling in our community.  WLNS crew members accepted donations throughout the day at the station’s Lansing studios as well as Consumers Energy Headquarters in Jackson.

The effort this year ending up with more than 3,000 pounds of food donated along with cash donations.  One local business, Auto-Owners Insurance, made a $5,000 cash contribution to the cause.
