2018 Founder’s Day of Caring

The staff of WNTZ FOX 48 and volunteered for the 2018 Nexstar Day of Caring event on Friday, June 15, at Manna House.

FOX 48 staff assisted other volunteers in food preparation and serving the community Friday lunch.

Manna House, ministered by the Catholic Diocese of Alexandria, is a place open every day for people from any walk of life to recieve a hot meal. Many who rely on Manna House are suffering from homelessnes or survive day-to-day on low earnings.

Manna House does this mission without governmental funding.  The community helps provide food, volunteers and financial donations in order to keep the operation running.

You can assist Manna House throughout the year by volunteering your time during a meal, donating food or making a monetary donation to help further their mission so that no one in our community goes hungry.

FOX 48 partnered with Friendship House to conduct a Hamburger Sale in order to raise funds for the non-profit organization.

Friendship House is the only licensed adult day care center in Central Louisiana which provides supervised programs and activities for adults who require a support system during the daytime hours, but can still live in their own homes or with relatives and friends.


FOX 48 partnered with the Food Bank of Central Louisiana to prepare care boxes of canned and dry goods which are distributed to feed the area’s senior citizens. 

The food bank services over 22,000 people every month throughout Central Louisiana through its various programs for children, familes and seniors.
