Consider This: Generosity Evident in Disaster Relief

Our telethon last week helped raise over $16,000 for the American Red Cross Our telethon last week helped raise over $16,000 for the American Red Cross

The long road to recovery is underway for the flooding victims in South Carolina.  So many people lost so much, but there is help available.

And our viewers, neighbors and local business owners showed how much our community cares with their generosity. We raised $16,000 for disaster relief for the American Red Cross along with our radio partners Digity and Community broadcasters.

What’s even more incredible is the amount of money raised for victims by working with our sister stations in Columbia, Charleston, Savannah and Charlotte.

Together through phone banks and online donations, Raycom Media stations were able to raise more than $851,000.

Consider This:  Local television and radio stations are here to serve the community.  And, I am proud to see how we all responded to this crisis and recovery.
