(KGTV) - The Walt Disney Company and its Houston television station KTRK announced Tuesday a joint $1 million donation to the American Red Cross to support communities affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The Disney ABC Television Group will also host a Day of Giving on Thursday, August 31. ABC local television affiliates, Good Morning America and other platforms will issue a call to donate.
“Our hearts go out to everyone in the devastating path of this historic storm,” said Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company. “It’s hard to fully appreciate the impact, in part because it isn’t over yet. But we know thousands of people have lost everything and now face the daunting challenge of putting their lives and communities back together, and we’re using our unique resources and reach to help those in need.”
Disney also announced employee donations to qualified groups would be matched by the company.
