Meredith’s CBS affiliate KMOV St. Louis raised almost $64,000 on March 31 for Shriners Hospitals during the “Our Heroes for Kids Telethon,” more than doubling the $31,000 raised last year. Shriners Hospital in St. Louis focuses on orthopedics and treats all children, regardless of their ability to pay. This can include aid for transportation and lodging for families.
