Utah political parties & ABC4 come together for 'Day of Giving'

How to help victims of Hurricane Harvey

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Utah Democrats and Republicans are joining forces to send aid and relief to parts of hurricane-ravaged Texas. Hurricane Harvey has dumped about 2 feet of rain along Texas' Gulf Coast, an amount that could double in some places before the storm is done battering the region.

At least 28 deaths related to the hurricane and its aftermath have been reported. Thousands of those in Harvey’s wake are dealing with the immediate destruction, but recovery efforts could take months.

Join ABC4 Utah in supporting the American Red Cross with this emergency donation drive. It’s part of an ABC Television Group initiative across the country.

The Red Cross is working around the clock to get help to where it is needed most. If you would like to help, you can drop off donations at the Utah Democratic Party Headquarters or the ABC4 Utah studios through Friday, September 1 at noon.

Items needed most:

  • bottled water
