In response to the devastation that severe weather and flooding have brought to our area, we gathered with our media partners to raise funds for the American Red Cross’s Oklahoma Storm Relief Fund. On Thursday, May 30th, 2019 all Cox Media Group radio and TV came together with our community to raise $126,922.
The Red Cross is currently asking that individuals focus on monetary donations if they wish to help those impacted by the storms.
