CONVOY OF CARE: Help the victims of Harvey

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!


Ever since the first images and first stories of Hurricane Harvey started coming into Channel 2, our viewers have been asking for ways to help.

"What can I do?"

"Where can we donate?"

"Is there a way I can get involved?"

Trust us, we heard you. And we wanted to help, too.

So we decided to start collecting bottled water, fill up a truck and take it to Houston!

Tuesday 4 p.m. UPDATE: We have nearly filled the first truck. We're getting another one!

Tuesday 6 p.m. UPDATE: Another truck just pulled up as Craig Lucie was LIVE on Channel 2 Action News at 6. Bring on more water!

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.

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. Tuesday and Wednesday.

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

We'd also 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.

Let's get it Family!!! The Convoy of Care is getting loaded up and on the way to the people of Houston. Harvey has hit them so hard and they need water. We would love you to come to our Midtown studio to donate water. 1601 West Peachtree Street. Let's get it!!!
