TOLEDO (WTOL) - WTOL 11, FOX 36, iHeart Media and Impact with Hope are joining forces to host a collection drive for the victims of Hurricane Michael.

As parts of the East Coast and Florida recover from the devastating damage the storms left behind, Impact with Hope will be bringing donations down to the disaster areas.

You can donate at WTOL on Thursday beginning at 5 a.m. and going until 7:30 p.m. Your donations will be sent to Panama City, Florida, one of the hardest hit areas.

Come by and meet some of the WTOL staff at the drive-through donation drive at the television station as well as the hard-working volunteers of Impact With Hope.

The station is located at 730 N. Summit Street.

Below is a list of items we are collecting.
