ATLANTA -- Last week, 11Alive hosted a telethon for the victims of the devastating storms that ripped through Alabama and North Georgia.

Metro Atlanta residents were incredibly generous during the event and donated more than $30,000 in one hour.

No clothing donations will be taken at this point, but AAA is still looking for:
