Improving the lives of our children

For Our Children

FOX 54 has launched the For Our Children community campaign. It's our station's most ambitious community project to improve the lives of children in the CSRA. Our efforts will include helping charities that focus on children's needs, recognizing the achievements of local children and providing you with valuable information so you can be a powerful positive role model in the life of a child, which benefits the future for all of our children in the CSRA.
