This program was formed to encourage others to “pay it forward.” The Community Driven Keeps Giving program, a partnership between Tom Dinsdale Automotive and KSNB Local4 is held on the third Thursday of each month.Each month, the “winner” selects a “recipient” to receive $300. The recipient can be an individual or organization, but the winner can’t keep the money or give it to a family member.
On the third Thursday morning of each month, the news anchors on Local4 Today at 6am give clues to the Community Driven Keeps Giving truck location. The truck appears in its new location at 10 a.m. within a 10-mile radius of Grand Island or Hastings.
People who figure out the clues and find the truck may receive a chance to draw a card. The person who draws the highest card is the winner.
The Community Driven Keeps Giving truck, Local4 crew and winner proceed to the recipient’s location to make the donation. The recipient must be within 10 miles of the truck location.
Video of the donation airs the following day on the Local4 morning show and on Tom Dinsdale Automotive social media channels.
