“Our friends and neighbors are hurting and the Salvation Army is well-equipped to help in these situations. We encourage everyone to donate and help in any way they can.” said general manager, Jim Himes.

The local salvation army, Fox8 employees and community members will run the telethon that started at 6 a.m. on Wednesday.
