As you’re catching up on your favorite Fox programming over the holidays, you’ll be seeing a lot about Family House. Toledo’s Fox 36 has adopted the organization for the 2018 holiday season.
In addition to sponsored commercials, Fox 36 will also lead fundraising efforts to help Family House keep families together in times of crisis and provide them with safe shelter, food and other necessities.
Family House board president, Dino Peluso II, says that the organization is being proactive in its fundraising efforts as recent government funding cuts will result in a funding shortage of $200,000 over the next two years.
“These funds are essential to keep the doors open, and we’re taking action now to ensure that families who need us have a place to call home while they regroup,” Peluso said. “We’re incredibly grateful to Fox 36 for giving us a platform to share the work we’re doing with the community,” he added.
The station will kick off its fundraising efforts on behalf of the organization during the Ohio State vs. Michigan Kick-Off Show on November 24th from 6 – 9 am.
