WTRF and the Nexstar Media Charitable Foundation have donated $5,000 0 to the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center of Wheeling.
“I have had the pleasure of serving on the local Easterseals Board of Directors for a number of years, and I’m thrilled to be able to present this donation on behalf of the Nexstar Media Charitable Foundation,” said Roger Lyons, Vice President/ GM of WTRF. “So many families have been helped throughout the years by Easterseals, and it’s rewarding to be able to help support this great organization. Giving back to the communities served by Nexstar across the country is core to the company’s mission and to WTRF-TV, and this donation is a clear demonstration of that commitment.”
President and Chief Executive Officer of the Easter Seal Rehabilitation Center said, “Easterseals is honored that the Nexstar Foundation has chosen our organization to receive this generous donation. We thank them for this donation, as well as for WTRF’s continued support for nearly 50 years. Community-minded organizations like Nexstar help us fulfill our mission. We will use these funds wisely to provide services to those in need, irrespective of their ability to pay.”
