OUR TURN: Community Giving

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - We want to take this opportunity to publicly thank all of our partners who worked with us on charitable projects over the past year. Christmas is a time when our thoughts naturally turn to the spirit of giving.

Many people in our community are in need, and there's no better time for all of us to remember that. Dozens of fundraising efforts are currently underway through our charities and churches. It's not too late for you to make donation.

If you're a parent who's concerned that your children seem to be learning more about Christmas consumption than the spirit of giving, this is a great time of year to teach them a lesson.

In addition to thanking our sponsors and community partners, I also want to single out our team members here at WAFB. Many of them have leadership roles in various charitable endeavors and we appreciate that very much.

That's "Our Turn." Now, it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
