DELLWOOD, MO – Thanksgiving is in full effect and one local St. Louis rap artist Rahli is paying it forward.

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving artist Rahli provided his community with a Thanksgiving Food drive at a local convenience market located in the heart of Dellwood Missouri.

The 27-year-old grew up just blocks away from the market and just recently released a new mixed tape titled ‘Dellwood Market’, showing his dedication to his roots.

The generous young artist not only provided the community with free turkeys, but volunteers also passed out food and hot chocolate.  There was an array of activities and music for people to enjoy while bonding.

Rahli’s close relatives, local residents, friends, and even Riverview Gardens High School Principal Mrs. Nave stopped by to grab a plate and show their support.

” It is more to me, I’m more than my music”, said Rahli.

His love for the community runs deep; earlier this month he supplied locals with Rahli care packages that contained chips, water, french bread and a variety of lunch meat.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
