Also not surprisingly, NLEC's stations are called "The Here's Help Network."
On Thanksgiving, for instance, instead of parades and football games, Channel 24 broadcast live - for three hours - its annual dinner at NLEC headquarters in downtown St.
In return for advertisements, the NLEC receives free courses for its constituencies.
The NLEC points to a number of success stories, including:
* James Wilson showed up at NLEC's headquarters on a broken-down bicycle, having traveled to St.
