UPPER PENINSULA, Mich. (WLUC) - The coronavirus crisis has all of us looking to see what we can do to help others and TV6 has just the opportunity for you to do that.
(Virtual TV6 Canathon logo, WLUC graphic)
TV6 decided to host a 'virtual' TV6 Canathon. We want to encourage giving in this time of great need.
With social distancing, food banks are asking for monetary donations to be sent directly to them.
