Gray Television announced on May 5 that during March and April 2020, its local television stations collectively helped to raise more than $12.6 million to benefit local residents and organizations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The efforts included a wide variety of telethons, on-air and online fundraisers, musical concerts, and other events lasting from one hour to a few weeks. Many of the stations launched their campaigns after learning about the difficulties that local food banks and other non-profits were experiencing as public health concerns resulted in the cancelation or curtailment of their normal fundraising activities, just as they experienced dramatic increases in need for their services.
