(Memphis, TN Mid-South area)  United Way of the Mid-South and WMC TV 5 are partnering to collect donations for a Storm Relief Fund to help nonprofits providing services to people impacted by storms which ravaged our area over Memorial Day weekend.

The storms left over 188,000 without power, creating a strong demand for services from numerous nonprofit organizations. Power has been restored to many, yet the storms created many immediate and long-term needs that this fund will help address.

How to donate:

  • Visit https://www.uwmidsouth.org/donatenow to make a donation online
  • Text storm5 to 313131 and receive a link to make a donation online using a credit card or debit card
  • Drop off a gift of cash or check on Tuesday, June 6 at WMC TV 5, 1960 Union Avenue in Memphis, TN. Please make checks out to “United Way of the Mid-South” with the words “storm relief” in the memo section of the check.

Donations will be distributed to help nonprofits provide services that assist people impacted by the storms. You can trust your donation will be used to help reputable organizations with high standards of performance.
