Community

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.  

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

Making a difference is easy when you have a copy of the Giving Guide!   We create this guide to be used as tool to help you get more involved.  The book features the needs of more than 100 local charities – what they do, what they need, and how you can help! 

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

As part of this effort we produce a special show called “Holiday Connection” hosted by Sherry Margolis and Jay Towers, 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 complete show on FOX 2 throughout the holiday season. Most of the agencies in the show are also in our Giving Guide. 

The Amy’s Angels stories in the show highlighted the following nonprofits:
- Troops need Love Too  http://troopsneedlovetoo.com/
- Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs  http://www.medicalservicedogs.org/

Maurielle Lue’s Kitchen Connect story mentioned two food entrepreneurs.  Learn more about them here:
- Five Star Cake Company  http://www.medicalservicedogs.org/
- Ice Cream Plant  http://icecreamplant.com/

Thank you to Canton Floral Gardens for providing such a beautiful backdrop for our show!  Visit them at 8207 N Lilley Rd, Canton, MI 48187

We hope you'll be inspired to reach out to one of the agencies featured in our show! 

FOX 2, and our partners Gardner-White, and 100.3 WNIC invite to you make a holiday connection!
