AT&T wireless customers seeking to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy along the hard-hit northeastern seaboard states can use their mobile devices to text donations to the American Red Cross, Salvation Army or American Humane Society, the carrier said.

AT&T wireless customers can make a $10 donation by texting to the following non- profit organizations:

• REDCROSS to 90999 to support the American Red Cross

• STORM to 80888 to help the Salvation Army

• HUMANE to 80888 to give to the American Humane Society

Customers who would like to contribute more can text up to five times for a total donation of $50. There are no fees for texting to donate, and customers will be charged via their monthly AT&T bill. AT&T donates 100 percent of the proceeds to the charities.

Customers with prepaid wireless accounts who donate will see the charges deducted from their prepaid account balances, the company said.
