MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Raycom Media donated $5,000 to The Salvation Army Wednesday to assist in the recovery of Hurricane Matthew in the Carolinas.

The donation came during the Raising Hope telethon, airing on Raycom-owned WMBF News from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Proceeds from the telethon will go directly to support victims of Hurricane Matthew and the subsequent flooding across the viewing area.

"Raycom Media is proud to serve the Myrtle Beach-Florence area and the other broadcast communities we serve throughout the Carolinas,” said Don Richards, Senior Vice President of Raycom Media. “We are grateful to the Salvation Army and WMBF News for this opportunity to further aid the relief effort."

The check was presented to Salvation Army representatives by WMBF News Vice President and General Manager Sarah Miles.

“WMBF News is dedicated to serving our viewers by providing life-saving information during times of dangerous weather or any threat in our community,” Miles said. “We are also committed to helping our neighborhoods, businesses and cities recover from disaster and we are thankful to partner with the Salvation Army.”
