MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY STORIES
In a little more than 24 hours this weekend, the Boys and Girls Club's unused land made the transformation they had only dreamed about.
As part of Make a Difference Day on October 27, WBIR is working with the
Boys and Girls Club of the Cumberland Plateau to build a mulit-purpose
sports field for the kids and community to enjoy.
WBIR has teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club of the Cumberland Plateau to turn an empty plot of land into a Field of Dreams for the kids to play on. We still need your help!
October 27 is Make a Difference day for WBIR, and our parent company, Gannett. It's a day we are supposed to get out and make an impact in our community, and with your help, we want to create a Field of Dreams for the children of one of East Tennessee's poorest counties.
