LA CROSSE, Wis. -

Many people in the La Crosse area are wondering how they can help out the millions of people affected by Hurricane Sandy. 

The Scenic Bluffs Chapter of the American Red Cross is joining forces with local media outlets for a disaster fundraising drive this Thursday.

The Red Cross will be accepting monetary donations outside the La Crosse Center Thursday from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.  All of the money will be used to assist in the relief efforts along the East Coast.

Several T.V. and radio stations will be doing remote broadcasts from the event throughout the day, encouraging their viewers and listeners to stop by and make a donation.

You don't even need to get out of your car to donate.  You can pull right up to the front of the La Crosse Center and someone will come to you.

If you can't make it to the event, you can donate anytime by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
