(WKOW) — WKOW 27 News and TV stations around the country are sharing how they #BroadcastGood throughout the day today on social media.

The program is an initiative of the National Association of Broadcasters.

Today, we’ll highlight some of WKOW’s favorite public service projects, volunteer efforts and work in the greater southern Wisconsin Community.

Among our community efforts over the past year are our Flood Relief Telethon with the Red Cross where we raised more than $130,000 to help people recover from last fall’s devastating floods.

Our annual Toys for Tots collection with the Marine Corps Reserve helps get toys to hundreds of families who otherwise would not have them.

Each month, we honor a volunteer in our community with a Jefferson Award for their tireless efforts to help those around them. Read their stories HERE.

WKOW Meteorologis Max Tsaparis was master of ceremonies for the 5th annual Dog Walk to support the Wisconsin Academy for Graduate Service Dogs.
Wake Up Wisconsin host Rebecca Ribley is passionate about Special Olympics and the opportunities it provides people with special needs in our communities. The athletes are a HUGE reason Wisconsin feels like home. #BroadcastGood
