Support Children in Need on Old Newsboys Day, Thursday, November 19

Old Newsboys Day is today, Thursday, November 19, and you can show your support for local children's charities by generously donating a gift of any amount in exchange for a newspaper written by kids about Old Newsboys charities. Approximately 3,000 volunteers are stationed at local street corners, or you can donate online. The mission of Old Newsboys is to "ensure that children who are at risk in our community, because of abuse or poverty, receive adequate food, shelter, clothing, medical care and are provided equal opportunity for social development."

Lewis Rice has been a longtime supporter of Old Newsboys Day and commends the work that this local organization does for at-risk children in our community. Our own John Hessel was honored to receive the 14th annual Golden Plate Hall of Fame Award earlier this year, recognizing his long-standing commitment of support to the Old Newsboys Campaign.
