This past Wednesday, WAMC held a one-day fund drive, with listeners coming together to raise more than $320,000 for the American Red Cross to support the thousands displaced by Hurricane Harvey. 

Beginning Tuesday, the Red Cross will hold one-day “boot camps” to train volunteers interested in traveling to Texas and Louisiana to support relief efforts.
