Many of you have asked how to help the people whose lives have been turned upside down by Hurricane Ian. We want to help, too.

Our parent company, E.W. Scripps, owns five TV stations in Florida, including affiliates in Fort Meyers and Tampa. We have scores of journalists on the ground and we know firsthand just how devastating this storm is.

That’s why MTN News is partnering with the Scripps Howard Fund for Hurricane Relief, organizing monetary donations for the people affected by the storm. Our teams across Florida will work directly with helping agencies to make sure every cent you give goes directly to the people and communities affected by the storm.

The Scripps Howard Fund is the philanthropic arm of the E.W. Scripps Company.

We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to help. You can text the word STORM to 50155 and follow the prompts. You can fill out the form below, or you can click here and follow the instructions to donate.
