LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Because community matters to us we’re giving back.
Friday (6/17), along with our sister stations across the nation, we’ll provide 20,000 hours of community service to organizations playing a crucial role where we live.
As part of Nexstar’s, Founder’s Day of Caring, we’ll head to the Arkansas Dream Center’s newly acquired Restoration Home for women.
The Dream Center works in communities across the state to help through social epidemics. The new Restoration Home will provide struggling women in our community a place to go.
“I’ve had different women come and confide in me,” said Jessica Mauthe, Director. “They’ve gone through some horrific things in their life and they have no one to really turn to. Their family is supposed to be their safe-haven and they can’t find it.”
Mauthe has been the project coordinator for the Dream Center but will take on the new role as Director of the Restoration Home in November. She hopes to have the Home open by the holidays.
So far they’ve raised $20,000 but set a goal of $150,000. If you’re interested in helping the project or helping women once it’s open, call Mauthe at 501-232-0630 ext. 102.
Nexstar Broadcasting, our parent company, launched its first station on June 17, two decades ago.
It’s grown to 115 stations and each will help provide community service to local organizations Friday to celebrate the company’s twenty year anniversary.
