EAST PEORIA, IL . -- The American Red Cross has provided more than 18,000 meals and snacks to Illinois residents in shelters after being displaced from their homes by flooding.  And that is only portion of the help that the American Red Cross has been providing since the flooding began last week.

Thursday, WEEK/WHOI joined with the American Red Cross to host a fundraising phone-A-thon. A total of $7,470 was raised during the 2.5 hour event.

Your Donations will go to help the red cross keep up with the massive undertaking.
