Research your 'Giving Tuesday' charities before donating

Research your 'Giving Tuesday' charities before donating

Good morning!

Here's what we're working on in the WAFF newsroom:

This morning, we're following up on a gambling bust in Lawrence County.

Investigators say they seized two gambling machines inside a Wavaho gas station on Highway 20 near Town Creek.  They also found gambling records and confiscated 2-thousand dollars in cash.  Investigators tell us they're talking with the Lawrence County D.A. and charges are pending.

We've made it through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but today is Giving Tuesday.

It's a fairly new twist on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. The idea is to donate to charities, but, not every charity is worthy of your money. This morning we'll give you a checklist of what you need to look out for, before making a donation.

Stop in and join us before heading out for your day.
