And the second quarter Give 9 winner is...

(WTVM) - Monday was a big day for WTVM and local charitable organizations as we announced our first quarter winner for our Give 9 campaign.

The first $5,000 check was presented Monday afternoon by our sponsor Headquarter Nissan to Warrior Outreach of Columbus.

Nearly 5,500 votes were cast for our 5 finalists, and Warrior Outreach won nearly 70 percent of the vote.

Warrior Outreach provides soldiers, veterans and their families with therapeutic assistance. It also helps widows of vets with home repairs and support. Sam Rhodes, a retired Army Command Sergeant, founded the organization.
