Gray TV Stations Team Up With Salvation Army to ‘Raise Louisiana’ for Hurricane Ida Relief Efforts
ATLANTA – WMBF News’ parent company Gray Television, Inc. announced Wednesday that its portfolio of leading local television stations in 103 markets across the United States will partner with the Salvation Army to help raise funds after Hurricane Ida.
Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana on August 29 as a Category 4 storm with winds over 150 mph, making it one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the region.
We have all seen the devastation left behind. The people who live there, their families and their businesses have a long way to go to recover. Now it’s time for the Gray Television family to help ‘Lift Up Louisiana’.
“Our local broadcast stations and the Salvation Army are coming together to support our friends in Louisiana after Hurricane Ida,” said Gray’s Executive Chairman and CEO, Hilton H. Howell. “The Salvation Army is known for its exemplary work and dedication to providing disaster relief efforts to meet the specific and immediate needs of survivors and relief workers. We are honored to work alongside them to help support the community during this difficult time. To help kick off the “Lift Up Louisiana” campaign, Gray Television is also donating $50,000.
