Along with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin, The “Go Orange” campaign asked viewers to take a picture of themselves alone or in a group wearing orange and post it to WMTV’s facebook page using the #Orange4SHFB hashtag.

The anchor team got in on the act, John Stofflet and Leigh Mills, along with meteorologist Brian Doogs, and sports anchor Robb Vogel did the 4:00, 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. newscasts wearing orange polo shorts to bring awareness to the cause.
