If you’ve ever seen someone in need and thought “I wish could help more,” then you understand the driving force behind KUTV News and Mountain America’s Pay It Forward. Designed to recognize a person, family or organization who could use a helping hand, this program brings attention to noteworthy causes and also provides them with cash donations. To date, the program has given $45,000 and counting to deserving causes.
How It Works
Mountain America members and KUTV viewers nominate individuals or groups who could use some financial assistance. If selected, KUTV News films the story and the Pay It Forward segment airs during the Wednesday 10 p.m. newscast.
If you know someone, or some group, that could use a little financial help, let us know. Simply visit KUTV’s website
and share your story in the form on the right side of that page.
All of the Pay It Forward segments can be viewed on Mountain America’s YouTube Channel. A few of the causes that have been highlighted include increasing cancer awareness, mentoring refugees adjusting to life in America, creating instructional videos for amputees, teaching the importance of seat belts and many more.
