WKBN is proud to support the Warren Family Mission as part of our Nexstar Founder’s Day of Caring. This school supply drive is one part of our commitment. WKBN employees will also be volunteering later this month and helping to share the story of the mission’s impact on the Valley.

“We’re just thankful that WKBN believes in volunteering and instilling into the employees the value of kindness. I think in a world where you see so much ugly, one small act of kindness goes a long way,” said Dominic Mararri with the Warren Family Mission.

The Warren Family Mission’s school supply giveaway will take place on August 5.
