Hurricane Harvey has devastated Gulf Coast Texas communities. The Sinclair Broadcast Group Stations and their local news organizations have covered the disaster from the very beginning. They witnessed the tragic results, and shared stories of the heroic efforts to save lives. Now, Sinclair Cares has joined hands with the Salvation Army by Standing Strong for Texas to get families impacted by Harvey the resources and help they desperately need. To make that happen, we need your help! Please donate what you can today. Every dollar will help victims get back on their feet and rebuild their communities.

Sinclair Broadcast Group and its 173 television stations across the country are teaming up with the Salvation Army and "Standing Strong for Texas."
