Powers said those who are interested in volunteering for the American Red Cross or who would like to donate money may call (800) 733-2767 or text "HARVEY" to 90999.

"Our entire WFXR News Team at WFXR, WWCW and Vriginiafirst.com is excited to have helped the American Red Cross coordinate this Local Mediathon that will give our community an opportunity to help the Red Cross raise funds for those who have lost so much in the wake of this awful storm, "said Arika Zink, Vice President and General Manager of WFXR and WWCW". The organization is looking to recruit more people who want to help during future crises.

The American Red Cross will be an integral part of recovery in the storm-affected area, providing shelters and supplies.

The company has almost 600 Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores in Texas, which is more than any state. "A cash donation to any of the charities you select".

All disaster relief funds received in Northern Michigan will go directly to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. "We are very proud of the fact that our overhead is low because it allows us to spend more on the people we serve".

The Indiana region of the American Red Cross has deployed 40 volunteers, along with six emergency response vehicles.

IS chief Baghdadi likely still alive: United States general
Despite a $25m bounty on his head, Iraq-born Baghdadi has avoided all efforts to hunt him down for more than six years. Reports suggest he was a cleric in a mosque in the city around the time of the US-led invasion in 2003.

Donations pay to support the mental health and health services professionals who support and care for evacuees - some 8,000 contacts have already been made.

Donations also pay to provide warehouses, technology - and the people that make all of this help possible for Hurricane Harvey.

As with all natural disasters, the public and the business world have reacted with an outpouring of aid for people suffering from Hurricane Harvey's extensive damage.

The destruction caused by Tropical Storm Harvey has thousands of volunteers heading south and others asking how they can help. "When things are at their worst, we seem to be at our best... we can prove that again by helping any way we can".

American Red Cross, which is participating in relief efforts, praised Bullock's donation as an "incredible gift" on Tuesday.

The American Red Cross response to Hurricane Katrina was poorly planned, relied too heavily on inexperienced managers and often failed to meet the needs of victims, according to worldwide Red Cross officials who were dispatched to assist their American counterparts.
