WAND TV Helps Raise $141K For Red Cross


Decatur - Decatur came through in a big way for the American Red Cross in its relief efforts to help Oklahoma tornado victims.  WAND-TV, Neuhoff Media, Herald & Review and the United Way helped the Red Cross in Decatur raise an estimated $141,000.  This number could go a bit higher as late donations come in.

Volunteers took calls at a phone bank and collected money on street corners in downtown Decatur for 8 hours on Thursday.  Donations came in all denominations from $1 to $100.

There were also larger donations.  $50,000 from Archer Daniels Midland, $1,000 from WAND TV, $2,100 from J.L. Hubbard Insurance and $5,000 from the Andreas Foundation.

Cromwell radio also raised additional money for the Red Cross with an evening fundraiser.
