New York-born actor Alan Alda is TV sitcom royalty.

He will be hosting the Homeward Bound Telethon this year, which will be airing right here on PIX11.

From the organization’s website:

“In 2012, Haven From the Storm, a 501(c) (3) registered public charity, was established to support veterans, aid in their recovery, and provide assistance for their re-entry back into productive society.  Haven’s mission is to raise funds to support charities that benefit returning service men and women, especially those who suffer the effects of post-traumatic stress injury and traumatic brain injury.  Haven from the Storm’s central project is Homeward Bound, a national fundraising telethon to premier on the Military Channel on November 10, 2013 to raise funds and awareness for PTS and TBI. 100% of funds raised through the telethon will be allocated in the following ways:  to organizations providing direct services to veterans suffering from PTS and TBI, to organizations providing education and raising awareness, and to organizations engaged in scientific and medical research in the field of PTS AND TBI.”

This Sunday, help support our nation’s veterans and tune in to Homeward Bound, airing from 7 to 9 p.m.
