Thanks to everyone who donated!


MADISON (WKOW) – Although cleanup and recovery continues in Texas, people in Florida affected by Hurricane Irma also are in dire need of help.

WKOW and the Wisconsin chapter of the American Red Cross are once again partnering on a live, 18-hour special fundraiser to help those in Florida.

To donate, call 1-866-272-8715.  Volunteers will be on the phones at WKOW throughout the day Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017. 

The event will begin with the Wake Up Wisconsin morning crew and last through the 10 p.m. news cast with updates on the air and on Facebook throughout the day.

Callers were generous during our Aug. 31 Harvey telethon, raising $95,093 in donations.
