All month long, NBC Connecticut has been proudly connecting you to relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey. Your generosity has helped thousands in Texas and Louisiana.
Now, Hurricane Irma has impacted millions of people in Florida, leaving many without a place to call home, picking up the pieces after this historic storm.
On Tuesday, Sept. 12, from 4-7 p.m., you can help during our “Relief For Irma” event. We’ll be broadcasting live from the NBC Connecticut studios taking your calls and monetary donations.
Donations go to the American Red Cross Hurricane Irma fund, which has dispatched volunteers to the hard-hit areas, assisting with food, shelter and resources for rebuilding after Hurricane Irma.
Watch NBC Connecticut Tuesday from 4-7pm, where we’ll display the number to call. If you would prefer to donate online, please click here.
