EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - Newschannel 9 is giving back to the community as part of our parent company's Founder's Day.
It's a day where all employees from Nexstar TV stations, across the country, volunteer with local charities.
One place you can catch our employees this Friday and Saturday is at the Humane Society of El Paso.
This week just so happens to be the "Kids 'n Critters" summer camp. It's an opportunity for kids to learn more about furry friends.
Groups like the humane society rely on volunteers to help run the shelter.
"Our volunteers are very much the backbone of the organization, Ryan Coulehan, Volunteer and Community Outreach Program Manager says. "They're the ones that walk the dogs, play with them, keep the kennels clean and keep everything pretty. Very much what we rely on to keep our organization running. We appreciate them and are always looking for more committed animal lovers."
