KARK 4 (KARK) and FOX16 (KLRT) will partner with the Salvation Army to conduct a telethon to raise money for the victims of the recent tornados that devastated many Arkansans.
Beginning at 5:00am and continuing until 10:30pm, The Arkansas Storm Team Relief and Recovery Telethon will be featured on each newscast on both KARK 4 and FOX16. Volunteers from the Salvation Army will be answering phones to take credit card donations for the relief effort.
The Salvation Army will use the money raised from the telethon to purchase food, water and equipment for their mobile feeding units, which are providing physical, spiritual, and emotional care for Arkansans hit hardest by the recent storms. Many victims will also receive Visa gift cards to buy the necessities lost when tornados took their homes. These gift cards will be purchased through McCain Mall, who has agreed to waive all fees associated with the cards, so that 100% of the money donated can go directly to the storm victims.
KARK and FOX16 will release the phone number for the telethon at 5:00am on April 29, on air and via social media. If you would like to make an immediate donation, you can do so by texting STORM to 80888, or by visiting SalvationArmyCentralArkansas.org.
