Steve Harvey Show Will Host Radio Fundraiser
Partnering with the American Red Cross to accept donations, the top-rated morning show is hosting the special program during its broadcast 6 - 10 AM EDT with special guests, to offer support and urge listeners to raise funds all day long as families in the disaster-stricken regions start the long road to recovery and rebuilding in the South.
With the goal of raising $100,000, The Steve Harvey Morning Show's dedicated program will interview mayors from the Alabama and Mississippi River-affected areas, the CEO of the American Red Cross and more during its broadcast, and show support for its local radio affiliates in New Orleans, Memphis, Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery, AL.
The Steve Harvey Morning Show has a dedicated hotline and text number provided by the American Red Cross where listeners and supporters can donate funds all day on May 16th, or they can also donate online.
With federal emergencies being declared in both the Alabama tornado outbreak and the Mississippi River's ongoing flooding, neighbors, recovery teams and the nation have come together with immediate support for ongoing efforts to help families and loved ones to meet basic needs, and rebuild their homes and these historic areas.
Says Steve Harvey, "These storms and tornadoes have left so many in the South without homes, their livelihoods and much more that will take great effort and dedication to rebuild, and whatever we can do to help in the road to restoring these areas and people's lives, we will work together to raise what's needed and keep our neighbors' spirits high to persevere through these challenging times."
