SPOKANE, Wash. --Your generous donations totaled more than $40,000 during the KREM Cares Help 2 Oklahoma fundraiser.

KREM 2 News collected thousands of dollars Wednesday thanks to the generosity of local viewers. The day-long event raised funds for families devastated by the tornado that tore through Moore, OK.

Red Cross volunteers, Clear Channel personalities, Dutch Bros. employees, and the KREM 2 News crew came together to collect the money.
