Power 98 along with our Charlotte Beasley Media Group stations partnered with Metrolina Greenhouse to fill up 18-wheeler tractor trailers for our "Truckloads For Texas" event to help with the relief efforts of Hurricane Harvey in the Houston and surrounding areas.
We love our listeners, and you came out in huge numbers! You helped to donate $2.8 million worth of supplies, almost 350 tons worth of them, that filled six Metrolina Greenhouse 18-wheelers to the brim and are immediately being shipped down to Houston and surrounding areas.
Over 65 Beasley Media Group staff members pitched in to take your donations at Circle K on 6519 Brookshire Blvd, and we couldn't thank you enough for all of your donations including bottles of water, toiletries, canned goods, charcoal grills/charcoal, toilet paper, and even hand-written notes from pre-schoolers!
Thanks to Samaritan's Purse, Crisis Assistance Ministry, the Salvation Army, Metrolina Greenhouse, our host Circle K, Victory Bolt, Mike Wallace for providing a fork lift, Cici's Pizza, Bojangles, Dunkin Donuts, Libretto's Pizza, PDQ, OrthoCarolina, and all of our loyal listeners!
See our staff tell you the importance of donating supplies for the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in the Houston area:
