News Channel 11 packs 500+ food boxes for Good Samaritan Ministries on Founders Day [Video]

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — Members of the News Channel 11 team packed about 550 boxes of food for Good Samaritan Ministries as part of the team’s Founder’s Day celebration.

Every year, Nexstar Media Group stations across the country participate in Founder’s Day, a day when the teams give back to their communities through service.

Team members helped pack boxes full of non-perishable items like macaroni and cheese boxes, canned vegetables, spaghetti, ravioli, peanut butter, and jelly at the North Ridge Community Church, West Market Campus. The boxes were stuffed in preparation for Good Samaritan’s first summer distribution event later in June.

“We do local stories,” said Storm Team 11 meteorologist Alex Williams. “We do local weather. We do local sports. And for us to be able to plug back into those communities…and being able to help our communities is even better.”
