Hurricane Ian's impact on our state is widespread and many are now in need. The call has gone out to help fellow Floridian's in their time of need. A number of volunteers opportunities are available. If you can help, please visit the Volunteer Florida website to register for an assignment. You can also make a financial contribution by visiting the Florida Disaster Fund webpage or donate by texting DISASTER to 20222 to make a $10 donation.
