Connecticut Kicks-in at Kick-off

(WTNH)- WTNH is proud to partner with the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference or CIAC and the American Red Cross this weekend at high school football games across the state to “Kick-in at Kick-off.”

The American Red Cross and Haitian Red Cross are pre-positioning disaster responders and relief items in areas that will potentially be hit by Hurricane Irma. They are getting relief materials and people in place to respond on the islands and from Florida all the way to the mid-Atlantic region. Plans include being ready to shelter more than 120,000 people. The Red Cross has also shipped additional blood products to Puerto Rico ahead of the storm to help ensure a sufficient supply is available for our hospital partners on the island.

Red Cross volunteers and workers are on high-alert and ready to spring into action, thanks to supporters like you. Please consider making a gift to the American Red Cross today as part of Kick-In at Kick-off for the American Red Cross at all CIAC football games this weekend. You will help people affected by disasters big and small, where it is needed most. To make a $10 donation, text HARVEY to 90999. You can also go to to make a donation or call 1-800-RED-CROSS
