WKKG being recognized for community service

White River Broadcasting’s WKKG will be recognized this afternoon for its community service efforts.

Brand Manager Kelsey James explains that the station is receiving the Cardinal Award from the Indiana Broadcaster’s Association for the annual Campout for Kids to benefit the Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund.

The Cheer Fund is the oldest charity in Bartholomew County and provides presents and food gifts for families throughout the community at Christmas time.

James has been taking part in the event since it started five years ago. She said it is a great chance to help out such an important community group.

She said she is always impressed by one particular type of donor.

The station will be recognized at a ceremony this afternoon.

You can get more information on the Cheer Fund at their Facebook Page, Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund, or at cheerfund.com.
