One of the easiest ways to help a nonprofit is to share their message. Thanks to ABC7 News, many local nonprofits were able to share their mission and needs with decision makers who could get the word out in a big way. ABC7 Morning News Co-Anchor Eric Thomas moderated a town hall meeting at the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano in July where local nonprofits conveyed their concerns to an ABC7 executive panel headed by President and General Manager William Burton where they heard about the need and our effect in the community.
ABC7 News provided information on how to access the TV station for news stories and to promote non-profit events. The big issue of the evening was the need for social services in the community.
Stories have already aired as a result of the meeting including a local back to school backpack drive and a social services summit.
Thanks for listening, ABC!
