Help Needed for Irma Recovery

Imagine if flooding has drowned your furniture, destroyed all your electrical appliances, or left your home completely uninhabitable!

A local charity in the rural Everglades City area is helping families there devastated there by the recent hurricane.

The situation is worse because businesses also suffered so some people have no jobs and cannot even buy the basic necessities.

Contributions are needed urgently. Any amount is welcome! Visit www.reachouteverglades.org where you can use a debit/credit card.

If you prefer to send a check, make it payable to “Reach Out Everglades” with a memo line “IRMA Fund” and send it to Reach Out Everglades, P.O. Box 894, Chokoloskee, FL, 34138

Reach Out Everglades & COPS Association, Inc. is the neighborhood charity for this remote area in Southwest Florida, which includes Chokoloskee and Plantation Island. It is a 501(3)(c) not-for-profit corporation. Your donation qualifies as a tax deduction.

You will be thanked by the community for whatever you can manage to contribute. And, if you have skills that may be useful in their recovery, please contact Elaine at 305-962-8136.
