How You Can Help & How to Request Our Help
Are you …
A homeowner in need of weatherhead repairs to have electricity at meter box connection?
Running a family farm in Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Bay, or Walton?
Have unreimbursed private pump repairs, farm irrigation issues, or livestock water-tank damage?
You’re in the right place.
It’s hard to describe now what one Mayor aptly called “a carpet-bombing.” People are still on their knees, and we are still helping, especially where it concerns safe hot running water—and helping remote family-run farms.
Hurricane Michael was the 3rd-worst hurricane in United States history—and the strongest hurricane on record to ever hit the Florida Panhandle. It devastated a swath of both urban and rural areas, while snapping millions of dollars’ worth of timber 90 minutes inland, way off the Gulf of Mexico. EIGHTEEN counties are receiving some form of FEMA assistance from the disaster. You’ve seen pictures of coastline devastation, but you probably haven’t seen much of the rural areas that had cattle break loose or die, barns explode, feed ruined, and their farms without electricity—for months. Most of the region was without power for about 3-6 weeks. Utility companies did a Herculean job rebuilding the grid—and that reflected the 9,000+ workers here from across the country assisting.
