HARLINGEN, Texas — Preparations are underway for a special day in the community. This Friday, Local 23 News will be observing what we call Founder’s Day. It’s a day to celebrate the founding of our parent company, Nexstar Media Group, and what better way to celebrate than by giving back to those that need it the most.
That means every employee at this station will spend some time to give back to the community we’re proud to serve. This year we’ll be at the Harlingen Neighborhood Food Pantry and the Salvation Army in McAllen.
Mario Quintanilla, Grants and Public Relations – Salvation Army, “The mission of the Salvation Army is to help the people with the most need in our community. One thing that people can do to help out the Salvation Army is to donate, volunteer, become involved with the different projects.”
Nexstar Media Group was founded in 2006 and now holds 174 stations across the country. Local 23 News will be one of the many to join this 23rd annual celebration.
