Atlanta News Outlets Deliver Half-Million Bottles Of Water To Houston
A local Atlanta news station and their media partners are making national headlines for their kindness towards Hurricane Harvey victims.
Channel 2 Action News alongside Convoy News 95-5, AM 750, the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, KISS 104.1, B98.5 and 97.1 used their Convoy Of Care partnership to leap into action and within days collected more than a half million bottles of water from metro Atlantans.
The philanthropic effort was particularly important to Channel 2 reporter Tom Jones who’s a Houston native.
“We put water on buses and drove to neighbors and apartment complexes and shopping centers,” Jones told The Atlanta Journal Constitution.
A dozen trucks delivered the 500,000 cases of water to Houston and the Port Arthur area and in just two hours the trucks were emptied.
Kudos to these news orgs for making a difference!
