Incredible! We are so thankful for all our listeners!  This will be an extended blessing to us in our efforts that will continue in the months to come. Yesterday’s impact was amazing - they had a count of over 1,100 vehicles come through. Above is a picture to show you just HOW MANY donations were given through our combined efforts! Thank you again!

In addition to the countless number of items received, we helped raise over $50,000 through on site and online donations yesterday.

Thank you to everyone who planned and executed yesterday’s drive as well as to all those who showed up to help direct traffic and shuttle donations.

Combined, our Emmis Austin stations reach over 500,000 Austin residents every single day. Our collective impact is far greater than any one of us could every accomplish on our own! Again, many thanks for responding!

You can still donate by texting “AUSTINRELIEF” to 444999 or online by selecting the Hurricane Harvey relief fund.
