KXAN Founder’s Day project gives Club kids a peek into TV magic

Jul 6, 2022

AUSTIN (KXAN) — KXAN is marking Nexstar Media Group’s Founder’s Day on Friday by giving back to the community we serve.

This year, KXAN is supporting the NYOS Boys & Girls Clubs and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area. Volunteers are working at a day camp, running activities for the children there, including giving them a peek into the world of weather and the TV magic behind green screen technology.

NYOS, a Not Your Ordinary School charter school, provides after school care and summer camps through a partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs, according to its website. The Boys & Girls Clubs has worked in Austin for more than 50 years to provide “high-quality programming and safe out-of-school care,” its website stated.

The “Founder’s Day of Caring” effort is part of a tradition across Nexstar stations to volunteer and do community service projects.
