As the East Coast gets battered by Hurricane Florence, various disaster relief agencies are urging people to refrain from collecting "stuff" to donate to victims of the storm.

The American Red Cross has been serving Daviess County and surrounding areas since 1917 and, this year, celebrates its 100th anniversary! And, to honor the occasion, the local agency is seeking one hundred volunteers to help with the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign in March!
The American Red Cross has big plans for their annual "Heroes" luncheon which is coming up on Friday, June 20th at the National Guard Armory here in Owensboro. They plan to honor, posthumously, Neil Bradley and Joe Lowe, for their dedication and long list of contributions to the Red Cross.
The American Red Cross has unveiled a brand new app devoted to care and first aid for your pets. Malissa Troutman recently visited The WBKR Waking Crew to explain the features of the app and how to get it.
