We will be broadcasting LIVE throughout the day from the American Red Cross Evansville-Wabash Valley Region to help raise funds for recent midwest and southern United States storm relief.

How Can I Help?

To support those affected by disasters like tornadoes, floods and other crises, I urge you to please make a donation to American Red Cross Disaster Relief by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

How Can I Spread the Word?

Ask your friends and family to donate and use the hashtag #tristateredcross on your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts!

How Will My Donation Be Used?
