Be a Harvey Hero: NBC10, Telemundo62 & Comcast Hurricane Relief Drive Raises $1M+, Donations Still Being Accepted

NBC10, Telemundo62 & Comcast have teamed up with the American Red Cross to raise money for those displaced by Harvey

    A Harvey relief drive from NBC10, Comcast and Telemundo 62 raised more than $1 million and counting for victims. NBC10's Drew Smith has the details.

    Unprecedented flooding from Harvey has created a catastrophe across southeast Texas and parts of Louisiana — leaving behind a swath of destruction that has yet to be fully understood.

    Harvey's victims will travel a long road to recovery and they need our help getting there.

    That's why NBC10, Telemundo62 and Comcast teamed up with the American Red Cross to support the victims of Harvey through our Hurricane Relief Drive.

    For 13 hours Thursday, an army of volunteers — including sports legends and even the Phillie Phanatic — took calls from Harvey Heroes all across the Philadelphia region.

    Thousands of calls came in and we were able to raise more than $1 million thanks to small donations from individuals and families and large pledges from local companies including Wawa, Parx Casino, NRG, Toyota, and Essity.

    The phone bank may have ended, but you can still give to our Relief Drive. Here's how below:

    Our partners at Live Nation will contribute a portion of new ticket sales from the upcoming Outlaw Music Festival at BB&T Pavilion to the Hurricane Relief Drive.

    For each ticket purchased through this link, Live Nation will donate $5 to the fundraising effort. That's while supplies last.

    The Outlaw Music Festival is taking place Sunday, Sept. 17 and will feature Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, and more.
