For Our Children - WFXG FOX 54 - News Now

WFXG 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. Watch FOX 54 News at 10 to learn how we can all make a difference. We will also be recognizing a child each week who has been doing extraordinary acts of positivity in their community.

WFXG works with these charities:
