Topic: Community-Focused Initiatives
Posted on 6/4/2015

Meredith Corporationís Fox affiliate KVVU-TV Las Vegas launched the Surprise Squad in December 2013. The Surprise Squad travels around Las Vegas performing random acts of kindness for local residents. The surprises have included providing people in need with groceries, gas and furniture. Over Memorial Day weekend, the Surprise Squad personally delivered flowers to four families who lost a loved one to military service. KVVU-TV donated money in honor of each family to provide care packages for troops or lay wreaths on the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery through the Wreaths Across America organization.
