ASU Police Department brings community together with Hurricane Harvey donation drive

For my first radio wrap assignment, I decided to look at the ASU Police Department’s Hurricane Harvey donation drive. Police Information Officer Katy Harris organized the drive after she was approached by one of the officers about what the department was doing to help those in Texas affected by the Category 4 hurricane. I had the opportunity to talk with Harris at the Tempe location of the ASU Police Department. She discussed the community response to the drive, which will send all its donations to Rockport, Texas, a small town that was hit by the eye of the hurricane. I got to see the bags of donations and learn about the usefulness of each item. I also interviewed Carson Holmquist, CEO of Stream Logistics, whose company donated the use of its services to transport the donation items to Rockport. It was very inspiring to see how the whole Valley community was getting involved in this project.
