New York has been impacted by coronavirus like no other place in the country. Monday evening, you can help those New Yorkers hit hardest by COVID-19.

Robin Hood and iHeartMedia have joined together to host a virtual telethon at 7 p.m.

Robin Hood says the money raised will be deployed directly to the organizations on the front lines that serve the city's most vulnerable during the crisis and its aftermath. 100% of the donations will provide support for food, shelter, cash assistance, health and mental health, legal services, education and more.
