Hearst’s ABC affiliate KETV Omaha, Neb., raised $118,000 for Food Bank of the Heartland on April 1 as a part of their virtual fundraising campaign, “Giving Wednesday.” Viewers were encouraged to donate by phone, through the non-profit’s website or by a Facebook fundraiser.

“When we find ways to give and connect with those in need, it not only lifts our spirits, it brings us back to our center, reminding us of who we are. As a local broadcaster we’re committed to connecting our community change-makers with those in need,” said KETV President and General Manager Anel Roblin. “Future Giving Wednesday’s will focus on volunteering and other ways people can make donations.”
