WRBL News 3 is proud to participate in this year’s Founder’s Day community event at the Columbus Dream Center.

Founder’s Day is an annual day of service from television stations owned by Nexstar Media Group Inc., in which employees for the company participate in day of work in the community.

“While WRBL has been On Your Side serving communities across the Chattahoochee Valley every day for nearly 70 years, today, our team is celebrating the 26th anniversary of the founding of our parent company, Nexstar Media Group, Inc, by volunteering at Columbus Dream Center,” said WRBL-TV Vice President and General Manager, Joe McGuire. “WRBL employees observe this day every year, Founders Day, by volunteering our time and energy to serve our local communities.”

This year, WRBL News 3 chose the Columbus Dream Center as the event site where our employees worked on site to improve facilities for an organization that is vital in supplying critical needs to the community.

The Columbus Dream Center (CDC) is an organization created to restore hope to low-income families in the Chattahoochee Valley area.

Since it began in 2001, the CDC has impacted over 40,000 people in the Chattahoochee Valley area with free food, meals, clothing, haircuts, life skills and more. The CDC is open on the third Saturday of every month from 11 AM to 1 PM.
