Alpha Media Runs Companywide Donation PSAs For Flood Victims Of South Carolina
Alpha Media is running PSAs, promos and social media posts in all 35 Alpha markets asking for donations for those affected by the South Carolina flood.
This past weekend, Columbia, South Carolina was devastated by torrential flooding leaving thousands trapped without running water, electricity or a way out affecting many fellow Alpha employees and their families.
The American Red Cross is providing safe shelter and support across the Carolinas where unprecedented flooding has destroyed homes, Red Cross volunteers have opened 35 shelters in North and South Carolina – 30 in South Carolina alone – where more than 200 people spent Sunday night.
Nearly 400 Red Cross workers, 22 response vehicles and shelter supplies for 5,000 people have been mobilized for South Carolina. People can help by donating to Red Cross Disaster Relief to support disasters big and small by visiting redcross.org, or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
Alpha Media Executive VP of Programming Scott Mahalick commented on the announcement, “All of us here at Alpha Media are in shock and devastated by the loss our fellow Alpha family members are experiencing. Words cannot begin to describe what they are going through, it’s unbelievable. We are appreciative of the Red Cross and what they are doing and want to continue to ask everyone to help out any way they can; by texting REDCROSS to 90999 or by helping run PSAs to support the efforts of the Red Cross.”
