An organization that helps survivors of human trafficking just got a little help thanks to KELOLAND Media Group.
Four people from KELO chose to volunteer for Call to Freedom.
Friday’s to-do list included sprucing up the organization’s supportive living property.
Improving the living environment for people recovering from human trafficking can go a long way.
“It’s important for us as an organization to show these victims and survivors that they’re important and that they have value. When we introduce them to a home that is beautiful and is welcoming and is safe it makes a world of difference in their recovery,” Call To Freedom Executive Director Becky Rasmussen said.
The volunteering effort was a part of Nexstar Founder’s Day of Caring.
Meteorologist Grant Smith is one of the four who chose to help out at Call to Freedom.
“It’s just good to give back. You know a lot of people see me on air and they just think, ‘Oh, he’s the weather man.’ But I actually do have–I’m a human; I do other things so it’s just good to give back and show that other side of who I am,” KELOLAND Meteorologist Grant Smith said.
In addition to Call to Freedom, KELOLAND volunteers helped out four other organizations on Thursday, too.
