“As television personalities, we feel that we have a responsibility to use our voice as a force of positive influence in our world and in our community.” says Richard Curren, co-host and director of the show. “To that end we have decided that the best place to share a message of positive support for those who serve our community was at a place where those they serve would be able to see characters they watch on television every week set an example of thanking and honoring these everyday heroes.” This led the cast to select Cedar Grove Elementary School as the site of the Season 4 premiere. In addition to the episode, special public service messages filmed by the cast with first responders will be shown covering such topics as staying in school, anti-bullying, anti-drug and inclusiveness messaging.
