If you have been wanting to help the people in the Carolina's but don't know how, there is a way to make your dollars go further.

One thing that makes Amarillo a great place to live is our generosity. Whenever there is a tragedy, the Panhandle is always all hands on deck. People, church, business, it doesn't matter. We are all on the same team when it comes to helping people.

If you have watched any of the hurricane coverage on the news over the past few weeks, you know that Florence has left a lot of damage on the East coast. Dumping more than 8 trillion gallons of rain in her wake, rivers are overflowing and neighborhoods are flooded. More than 4,000 people were rescued in North Carolina alone and the rescues are still ongoing.

That is why they need our help. You can donate funds locally by teaming up with The Salvation Army and KVII News Channel 7's parent company Sinclair Broadcasting. For ever dollar donated locally, Sinclair will match up to $50,000. This is a great way to double your donation in their time of need.
