In the midst of the unprecedented destruction from Hurricane Harvey, WXYZ-TV and WMYD-TV in Detroit have taken action for Texas with a multi-platform relief effort that includes a special volunteer phone bank to assist in this time of great need.
WXYZ and WMYD partnered with the Red Cross of Michigan to staff a phone bank that gives viewers the opportunity to help. Phone lines were open this past Monday (August 28) for four hours and all day Tuesday (August 29) from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Red Cross of Michigan volunteers joined WXYZ and WMYD employees to help Metro Detroiters who want to donate to the relief effort.
“Our team is passionate about helping those in need,” said WXYZ and WMYD vice president and general manager Mike Murri. “We believe we can be a catalyst to encourage Metro Detroiters to donate in support of this important relief effort. We know the generous people of this community are committed to helping make a difference in the lives of the people in Texas.”
