WTHR Cares: Hoosier Tornado Relief


WTHR Cares is launching a community-wide effort to aid our fellow Hoosiers who were impacted by Friday's deadly tornadoes in Southern Indiana. All proceeds will go directly to the Indiana Red Cross.

People donated a total of over $360,000 during Monday's fundraising drive at WTHR's studios. By the end of the week, the total was over $500,000.

If you made a donation during Monday's telethon, click here to get a receipt.

Kroger is one of our WTHR Cares community partners. You can still make a cash or credit card donation at any Kroger location across Central Indiana. Donations can be made at Kroger for two weeks, starting Sunday, March 4.

You can also make a donation at any Forum Credit Union for the next two weeks.


Make checks out to "American Red Cross."

Send the check to:
