Corpus Christi - Coastal Bend residents responded in a huge way for a donation drive held this afternoon to benefit those folks in West.
Today MajicQ 104.9 and Boost Mobile teamed up for a donation drive. People of all ages answered the call and streamed in all day to help any way they could.
Even residents as young as 9 years old came out to help.
"He wanted to help with whatever he can and he knows he can have anything so he's like mom just take this and take that and I said OK let's do it," said Jennifer Gomez about her young son Isaiah.
People donated everything from water, to clothes, to toys for the victims in West. They donated so much they were able to fill up two U-Hauls.
"When something like this happens, it's always best for all of us to unite together as one and help out those in need," said Sarah Martinez.
The drive ended at 8pm, and residents who donated all agree it was worth it.
"I'm pretty sure if anything were to happen to any of us, everyone would be doing the same thing and helping out each other," said Martinez.
When I asked little Isaiah how he feels knowing that he was helping someone, he told me "good."
The donations are now on their way to West.
