Join Us and the Local Salvation Army For the Hurricane Harvey Road to Recovery Drive On Sept. 5

Our radio station and the Salvation Army are partnering in an effort to help Texans in their hour of need. On Tuesday, Sept. 5 you can join with us by donating to this relief effort.

Our phone lines will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. taking your calls to pledge to donate. You can make your donation by credit card or you can make a pledge to donate cash, check or money order. If you make a pledge, we will mail you an addressed, stamped envelope for you to return your pledged money directly to the Salvation Army.

100% of every dollar given during this fundraiser will go directly to our local Salvation Army chapter to be used in the Hurricane Harvey relief effort. Your money will immediately help and benefit those in need due to Hurricane Harvey and the devastation left in its wake. 

The local chapter of the Salvation Army and numerous local volunteers are already providing shelter, food, and clothing to victims in Houston and surrounding areas. The need is great!

"As the situation in south Texas continues to worsen following Hurricane Harvey's landfall, the Salvation Army has activated all of its U.S. and Canadian emergency disaster response assets," said Maj. C. Mark Brown, the director of business operations for the Salvation Army's Texas division. "These units are able to provide food, shelter, and emotional and spiritual care to those impacted by this ongoing, devastating weather event.”

Not only is the current need great, but the long-term recovery looms and predictors forecast this is the worst catastrophe in U.S. history, with losses expected to be in the billions of dollars.

The need for financial assistance is critical. Donate on Sept. 5 to help our neighbors survive and recover from this historic event. Every dollar helps.

Call the studio line on Sept. 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to donate during our fundraiser. And thank you for your help.
