Hurricane Irma Miami Dade County Relief Drive
Hurricane Irma swept through the entire State of Florida up to Georgia damaging homes, and businesses. In Miami Dade County about 530,000 of the estimated 3 million residents live below the poverty line. On the surface, Hurricane Irma seemed to spare most of South Florida the brunt of the storm when it comes to structural damage. But days without power and unpaid time off — or no work at all — casts a harsh spotlight on the poverty that existed in Miami-Dade’s most vulnerable communities long before Irma made landfall.
While some grassroots efforts are trying to bring food to our communities after the storm, it does not always get to everyone who needs it, and some families report they’re going hungry.
Over the past 2 days we along with Headliner Market Group, Luther Campbell, House of Wings, House of Mac, City of Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon and countless others, have fed nearly 3,000 seniors and families in District 5's Liberty City Community and we'd like to do more with your help & support!
We’re raising funds to purchase groceries (for seniors and families with small children) to replenish their food supply once power is restored.
We ask for your help and support.
