FOX8/WGHP holding telethon for hurricane victims Wednesday

As the southeast region, and in particular the coastal communities of North Carolina and South Carolina, begin the long road to recovery from the devastating effects of hurricane Florence, Tribune Broadcasting’s FOX8/WGHP will hold an in-studio telethon Wednesday, September 19, from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. to aid in the recovery effort.

All money pledged during the 13-hour phone bank will be processed by the Salvation Army’s national headquarters and distributed to the areas of greatest need.

“We are in a time of dire need, and the people of North Carolina need to come together as one.  Now, more than ever, our neighbors need our help.” said FOX8/WGHP General Manager Jim Himes.

The 13-hour in-studio telethon will be staffed by Salvation Army volunteers, FOX8 staff members and various community leaders.

To donate and help the victims of this devastating hurricane, call (336) 821-FOX8.

You can also donate through the Salvation Army website.
