Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia - With the Holiday Season fast approaching, Eastlink TV proudly kicked off its Holiday Telethons in two Nova Scotian communities this past weekend, helping to raise more than $100,000 in total.
“Giving back to the communities where we live and work is especially important during the holidays when the need is so great”, said Michael Smith, Director of Eastlink TV.
“As the local community TV channel, we have the ability, the platform and the desire to help these organizations reach their goals and strengthen the communities in which we live and work.”
“We want to express our thanks to Eastlink TV and the many volunteers who worked Sunday to make for an extremely successful day,” said Chair of the Pictou County Christmas Fund, Monique Sobey.
“The partnership enjoyed in Pictou County between media, local businesses, artists and the community-minded people of Pictou to produce, host and dedicate their time to ensure local families will be able to enjoy their Christmas dinner is a very unique and special relationship.”
Bob Lyle from the Aylesford Christmas Mommies and Daddies said, “We’ve had a great affiliation with Eastlink TV, and we hope to continue that.”
“Eastlink’s interest in the community is an interest that we share as volunteers. They’re very family and community- oriented. Our motto as Lions is that we ‘serve our community’, and that’s why we gel so well together.”
Eastlink TV has been involved in community telethons for over 35 years, and helps generate more than $3 million in funding each year for many charitable causes.
