SALT LAKE CITY — Fox 13 News partnered with the Utah chapter of the American Red Cross for a telethon Friday to raise money to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Phone lines closed at 10 p.m., but viewers can still make donations of $10 by texting “Harvey” to  90999. Donations of other amounts can be made online by clicking here. 

Initial estimates put the total from Friday’s telethon at or above $100,000, but we’ll provide an update once a total is officially calculated.

“Time and time again, Utahns have shown compassion and support for disaster victims during a time of need,” said Fox 13 News Director Marc Sternfield. “The recovery from Hurricane Harvey is going to take sustained support and we want to do whatever we can to help.”
