Awareness and Fundraising Campaign for MyCom
FOX Sports Ohio has partnered with the Cleveland Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the Foundation’s MyCom program. MyCom, short for My Commitment, My Community, helps coordinate and fund local agencies that provide quality youth programs, including after-school activities, summer jobs and special help during school transitions to kindergarten, middle school, high school and beyond. The network has been working with local community partners within the MyCom program and intends to boost awareness of their causes through a series of PSA’s, vignettes and features running on the network.
Viewers interested in donated $5 to MyCom can do so simply by texting “Give4Cleve” to 20222. Donations can also be made at http://www.mycom.net/.
The network will also feature a special Cavs game committed to raising awareness and funds for MyCom on December 18, when the Cavaliers play New York at Quicken Loans Arena at 7:30pm. The campaign will be featured and viewers will have the opportunity to make a financial contribution to MyCom via text messaging.
Volunteering at the Domestic Violence Center “Twinkle Shop”
FOX Sports Ohio has been a long-time supporter of Cleveland’s Domestic Violence Center (DVC), and this holiday season provides staff the opportunity to give their time. In mid-December, the DVC hosts the “Twinkle Shop,” which provides women and children in need with the chance to shop and give to their families over the holidays. FOX Sports Ohio employees spend the evening helping women and children navigate the shop and make selections. For more information on the DVC, visit www.domesticviolencecenter.org.
