Thousands of people in Texas and the surrounding states have been affected by Hurricane Harvey, and we here in the Tri-State can help out!

There are several ways you can help. You can make a simple monetary donation. The easiest way is to text "Red Cross" or "Harvey" to 90999. This will charge $10 to your phone bill. You can also donate other monetary amounts by clicking the link below.

Theo Boots, the Executive director of the American Red Cross of Southern Indiana is also asking anyone who can volunteer here in the area for disaster relief or willing to travel to Texas to contact them at (812) 471-7200. They will be training new volunteers to help with relief efforts.
