GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. --A strong show of support Saturday for two West Michigan businesses  who came together to collect donations for the victims in Harvey's aftermath.

Florentine's Sports Lounge teamed up with ServPro Grand Rapids , to collect food, bottled water, along with blankets, clothes, and anything else people may need.

Together the businesses hosted the drop off Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m at Florentine's, 4261 Kalamazoo Avenue in Grand Rapids.

Organizers say they were inspired to start the collection drive when watching video of the devastation from Texas.

The company has already delivered one trailer full of donations and next week  crews will deliver all of the items to refuge centers along the Gulf Coast.
