The third annual Home Base Veterans Day Special – a 90-minute, commercial-free event – will highlight clinical and support services that Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and MGH Program, provides to help heal post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.
The telethon will air Nov. 10 from 7:30 – 9 pm on ABC affiliates WCVB-TV Channel 5 in Massachusetts, WMUR-TV Channel 9 in New Hampshire and WMTW Channel 8 in Maine. The event will also be live-streamed on each station’s website. The broadcast aims to educate the community about the invisible wounds of war, and focuses on patients who share their stories in hopes of reducing stigma.
The telethon will be hosted by WCVB-TV NewsCenter 5 news anchor and U.S. Air Force veteran Randy Price and WMUR-TV news anchor and military spouse Amy Coveno. Viewers can make a donation by calling toll-free at 866-615-8387, by texting “Veterans” to 91999 or by contributing online.
