Change the World in a Week - wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather & Sports

A few weeks ago, WAVE 3 and our Dawne Gee asked you to join us in helping four local charities to raise awareness and items of need. On Monday of each week, WAVE News anchor Dawne Gee featured one of the four organizations and made suggestions for how you can help. Now it's time to see how we did. In the coming days, Dawne will be checking with each of the organizations to find out how well we did. All items and money will be used to fulfill their "wish list" of items needed for these organizations to continue their service to the community. Remember: it's not too late to give. Pick an organization and drop off your items. And on behalf of Dawne Gee everyone at WAVE, and the people you're helping - thank you.
