After a string of deadly and destructive tornadoes hit Alabama and Georgia, Channel 2 Action News — in partnership with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other groups — is getting ready to launch another Convoy of Care to help gather donations for victims.

Convoy of Care collecting relief items for tornado victims

Channel 2 Action News has launched an initiative to help victims of last weekend’s deadly tornadoes that carved a path of destruction through Georgia and Alabama.

Starting Tuesday Convoy of Care will collect donations for tornado victims between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at two locations: Channel 2 Studios at 1601 West Peachtree Street and Georgia State Stadium at 755 Hank Aaron Drive in Atlanta.

Baby and adult hygiene products such as diapers, wipes, soap, nonperishable food items, gloves, yard tools and gift cards will be collected.

Channel 2 is partnering with Caring for Others, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, News 95.5 AM/750 WSB, B98.5, KISS 104.1 and 97.1 FM to send relief items to those affected. Other companies who are donating services include Atlanta Peach Movers, Georgia Motor Trucking Association, Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, Georgia Sheriff’s Association, Georgia State University and Palletworks.

This is the third year Channel 2 has organized Convoy of Care. It launched the collection drive in 2016 to assist storm victims in Baton Rouge, followed by flood relief efforts in Houston in 2017 and assistance to areas affected by Hurricanes Michael and Florence in 2018.
