Today, United Way of the Mid-South and WMC TV Action News 5 are partnering to raise funds in support of relief efforts due to the storm on May 27. While there were no reported deaths and major injuries, almost 200,000 Memphians were left without electricity causing food to spoil and other inconveniences.


A host of volunteers including staff from each organization are spending countless hours taking donations from generous individuals and families. Donors can drop off donations at WMC TV at 1960 Union Avenue until 6 pm. There are other ways to donate as well.

  • Drop off a gift of cash or check on Tuesday, June 6 at WMC TV 5, 1960 Union Avenue in Memphis, TN. Please make checks out to “United Way of the Mid-South” with the words “storm relief” in the memo section of the check.
