The lights, the trees, the music, the shopping, all signs of the holidays. But there is more to this magical season – the chance to help others, give back and make a difference. At FOX6, we call it the Season of Giving.
This year, we’re shining the spotlight on four charities in southeast Wisconsin. Each of these organizations helps thousands of people in our community every year. It’s easy to get involved and there are several ways you can make the holidays brighter for those in need.
FOX6 also celebrates the holidays with the Season of Giving Holiday Special hosted by Ted Perry and Mary Stoker Smith. Join us as we share the best in food, music, lights and charity. Watch the Season of Giving Holiday Special on Monday, December 24th at 9 p.m., and Tuesday, December 25th at 11 a.m. For more information on the places and events seen in the Season of Giving, click on the links below.
