    Help Action News Jax collect supplies for the victims of Hurricane Michael by donating to our Convoy of Care. This relief effort will send supplies and funds to areas along the Florida Panhandle hit the hardest - and we need your help to make it possible. 

    Action News Jax is teaming up with News 104.5 WOKV and other Cox Media Group radio stations to collect supplies, including nonperishable food items, diapers, baby formula and bottled water. 

    Drop off supplies at St. Johns Town Center on Tuesday, October 16 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. We’ll be at the Maggianos roundabout to greet you.

    We'll also be collecting monetary donations through October 31. These funds will be donated to the American Red Cross. 

    What you can do:

    • Drop off bottled water, diapers, baby formula and nonperishable food at St. Johns Town Center on Oct. 16.
    • Make a monetary donation in-store at any VyStar Credit Union branch - cash only!

    “The stories and pictures our reporters, photographers and helicopter have brought back from places like Panama City and Mexico Beach are staggering and heartbreaking," said Bob Longo, General Manager at WJAX/WFOX Action News Jax. "We can only imagine the impact it has on our fellow Floridians there and feel a responsibility to help them any way we can.”

    Other key partners in making this effort work who are donating their services are:
