Fox 2 Project Holiday Connection

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

FOX 2 is working for you all year long, but we know we're part of a bigger community -- a giving community.

That's why we go to work every year to help connect you to the people and agencies who need your help.  We help you make, a Holiday Connection!

At the heart of that effort is The Giving Guide - a book we put together every year with Gardner-White Furniture.

The Giving Guide features more than 100 local nonprofit agencies 'wish lists' - things they need to help others.

You can pick up a Giving Guide at any Gardner-White Furniture Location or get it online, click here.

Plus - don't miss our special show hosted by Sherry Margolis, spotlighting some of the charities in the book and featuring stories of amazing people in our community who are giving back in big and small ways. Every person can make a difference! 

Watch the show on Fox 2, Thanksgiving Day @ 6:00 am and again on Friday 11/29 @ 11:00 a.m. We hope we inspire you to reach out to one of the agencies featured in our show! 

For example, FOX2's Amy Lange profiled a group bringing hope to the homeless.  You can reach them here:
