MILWAUKEE- Many of you have asked what's the best way to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy.

TODAY'S TMJ4 wants to help, too.  That's why we're continuing our phone bank on Friday.

The Red Cross will be at TODAY'S TMJ4 to take your donations between 3 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  Your donations will be used for blankets, food, shelter and other things people need just to get by.

So, if you want to help, we'll make it easy for you.  Just tune into TODAY'S TMJ4 Friday from 3 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  At that time, you can call the phone bank at 888-363-0023.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards are expected to answer calls Friday afternoon.

Otherwise if you want to donate to the Red Cross, text "REDCROSS" to 90999 for a $10 donation added to your phone bill.  The Red Cross says you can help by donating blood.  Appointments to donate blood can be scheduled by clicking here.
