Tribune Broadcasting’s FOX8/WGHP's in-studio telethon runs from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. Wednesday 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.

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