The Walt Disney Company has pledged $1 Million to the American Red Cross to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The company has teamed up with its ABC television station KTRK to help support relief efforts in Houston, Texas.

“Our hearts go out to everyone in the devastating path of this historic storm,” Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer at The Walt Disney Company said in a release. “It’s hard to fully appreciate the impact, in part because it isn’t over yet. But we know thousands of people have lost everything and now face the daunting challenge of putting their lives and communities back together, and we’re using our unique resources and reach to help those in need.”

The company also announced it would match dollar for dollar any Disney employee donations to the American Red Cross.
