The trucks are loaded and ready to head west! Again, we can't thank you all enough for your generosity.

All of north Georgia has yet again shown what we can accomplish when we come together. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

UPDATE 3 p.m. Wednesday:

THANK YOU, NORTH GEORGIA! You have stepped up in such a big, big way! In fact, we have collected all the water we can deliver! We will continue to take water until 8 p.m. TONIGHT ONLY.

The Convoy of Care has filled *5* semis full of badly-needed bottled water and they will soon head to Texas.

Again, THANK YOU, NORTH GEORGIA! Houston is about to feel the love!


Hundreds of you came out and helped Tuesday – so we’re continuing our effort to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday, we’re continuing our “Convoy of Care,” where we collect bottles of water and send it to Texas.

If you're interested in donating, bring your bottled water to the Channel 2 Action News station (1601 W Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30309) between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. today and Thursday.

This version of "Convoy of Care" will be hosted by Cox Media Group -- specifically, WSB-TV, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, News 95-5 and AM 750, KISS 104.1, B98.5 and 97.1 The River.

On Tuesday, we filled an entire truck donated by Atlanta Peach Movers – and we need your help to fill up another!

So please help us spread the word by using #AtlantaCares and we'll see you at the truck!

We'd like to thank Atlanta Peach Movers for providing the truck and movers to help load it!

Kroger is also helping with its "round up" campaign. You can round up your bill up to the next dollar. The difference will benefit the Red Cross.

You can also donate to the Red Cross here.

Come help us with our #convoyofcare! We are loading up this semi with water! WSB-TV News 95-5 and AM 750 WSB
