The American Red Cross reports an overwhelming response so far in the ABC Day of Giving event.
Call volumes are extremely high right now as viewers of ABC's daytime programming ring in to make donations. Some are having trouble getting through if they dial the nationwide number of 1-800-HELPNOW.
Organizers encourage folks to keep trying despite the high traffic.
Local Red Cross spokesperson Donita Quesnell said folks in Green Country can also call the Tulsa office at 918-831-1100.
Representatives there can help if they have trouble with the national toll-free number and need information on other ways to donate.
