BENEFITING: American Red Cross
WTVO-ABC17 and WQRF-Fox39 in Rockford, IL, in partnership with American Red Cross, is hosting a one day fundraising event to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Since the tornadoes and storms hit Northern Illinois last week, the American Red Cross has served 3500 meals and 3400 snacks across the affected area. While relief work continues, our recovery work is now beginning in earnest. We’re focused on making sure that the impacted individuals have access to the comfort and clean up items – from work gloves to toiletry items to shovels and rakes – they’ll need to get back into their homes. Red Cross emergency vehicles are driving through Ogle County and Fairdale to distribute food and clean up items. We will provide impacted families with additional support and resources as needs are identified.
