Everyone is being invited to join Action News Jax Family Focus in helping the community of Las Vegas.
“Our hearts are broken,” the city of Las Vegas said in a post on its website and Twitter page. “Help Las Vegas heal. Send a heartfelt message to our city.”
Action News Jax Family Focus will be collecting cards and letters at the Action News Jax studios now through Wednesday, Oct. 18. You can also drop off cards at any VyStar Credit Union branch.
“This tragedy has affected us all,” said Bob Longo, news director for CBS47/FOX30 Action News Jax. “It’s like a part of our family is hurting. I think it’s only natural for folks here to want to be able to express their sympathy and support and we’re glad we can help.”
The Action News Jax studios are at 11700 Central Parkway, Unit 2, Jacksonville, Florida, 32224. There will be a letter box on the front steps; Action News Jax Family Focus will mail the cards to the city of Las Vegas and cover postage costs.
The Action News Jax Family Focus initiative, together with partners Publix Supermarkets, VyStar Credit Union, Bozard Ford Lincoln and Wolfson Children’s Hospital, aims to improve lives and offer hope and solutions for families in need.
