Hurricane Irma Relief Resources

Our prayers and thoughts go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Irma. It was not too long ago we set up a recovery and relief list of options for anyone wanting to help out Hurricane Harvey victims and survivors, so it is only right that we do the same thing for those facing hardships after Hurricane Irma down in Florida, Georgia and the the Caribbean. Updates will be made periodically so if you know someone hosting a drive or have one going on of your own, please leave a comment below with a link providing more information that we can add to our list of resources for the public. Links are provided at the bottom for you to share with family and friends through social media and email. Flyers have also been included below for events pertaining to hurricane recovery efforts.
