KDAF, Nexstar’s CW affiliate in Dallas (DMA 5), donated $100,000 to the Dallas Education Foundation to benefit the Dallas Independent School District and several area schools severely damaged by tornadoes that ripped through the area earlier this fall.
“Over 3,000 of our students, teachers and support staff continue to feel the effects of the damages caused by the tornadoes that ripped through Northwest Dallas on October 20,” said Mita Havlick, the Dallas Education Foundation’s executive director.
“The big takeaway for us is that our Dallas ISD students and schools are still top of mind, making us believe we are a part of the fabric of this greater community. We are incredibly thankful to the Nexstar Media Charitable Foundation for your generous donation to the Dallas Education Foundation Tornado Disaster Relief Effort.”
WDTN, Nexstar’s NBC affiliate in Dayton, Ohio (DMA 64), donated $60,000 to two funds established by The Dayton Foundation.
The Greater Dayton Disaster Relief Fund was created to benefit the thousands of residents affected by 15 tornadoes that ripped through the Dayton area last spring and The Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund was created after the tragic mass shooting in the city’s Oregon District on Aug. 4, 2019.
“The outpouring of support and compassion for our community and the individuals and families most impacted by the Memorial Day tornadoes and the Oregon District mass shooting is nothing short of heartwarming,” said Michelle Lovely, vice president of development and donor services for The Dayton Foundation.
“These gifts will provide much needed resources to help our community get back on its feet in the months and years to come.”
KTSM, Nexstar’s NBC affiliate in El Paso, Texas (DMA 93), donated $30,000 to the El Paso Community Foundation to benefit victims of the horrific mass shooting at a local Walmart store this past summer where 22 people were killed when a gunman opened fire. The fund helps victims and survivors struggling with a wide variety of unexpected burdens as a result of the shooting.
“KTSM and 9 News have always had an important compact with the community to work in its best interests,” said Eric Pearson, El Paso Community Foundation’s president.
“This gift will help ensure that people who need to access care will have the option to do so. We are thankful for an incredible response from our community for our community.”
