CDT August 30, 2017 CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST COLLEGE STATION, Texas - We've all seen how powerful social media can be during a disaster from organizing rescues to broadcasting desperate cries for help. One student at Texas A&M took to twitter to see if anyone wanted to help with Harvey recovery efforts. Greta Swift asked on Twitter for groups to come together and start a donation drive. 200 A&M organizations later, they have nearly 15,000 dollars and several cases of water and food to donate. "This all started on social media and we are getting so many messages asking us where they can drop off items and that's been the coolest part about everything ," Swift said. President Young got word of this group and dropped off several items on Wednesday. "I brought snacks, rice, water, anything that people would need. We are so pleased with what Greta is doing that we couldn't help but participate," Young said. © 2017 KAGS-TV CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST JOIN THE CONVERSATION To find out more about Facebook commenting please read the Conversation Guidelines and FAQs Leave a Comment TRENDING VIDEOS Construction begins on a new Ronald Mc Donald Family Room Free transgender clinic opens tomorrow Push for change: Allowing strollers in Boston Marathon Lane Closures coming to FM 2818 on Wednesday Christie Whitbeck finalist for BISD Superintendent Grimes County K9 officers get vest upgrade woman allegedly stabs father, bites mom 16-year-old charged with shooting parents Ways To Save For Thursday, March 9, 2017 More Stories Report: Texas A&M will fire Kevin Sumlin after LSU game Nov 21, 2017, 6:56 p.m. Human remains found in College Station Nov 18, 2017, 4:47 p.m. Here are 32 Black Friday deals one week early!
