It continues to be a devastating time for many as Hurricane Ian demolished the livelihood of countless individuals. Making a mark as one of the most intense hurricanes and Category 4 storms, it will take time to rebuild life that was once lived in Southwest Florida. Upon this difficult time, it is crucial we come together and help others. Local Government sectors across the nation have the power to assist through mass communication. If you are looking to extend a hand to help a victim in need, there are several opportunities to do so. Let me guide you to a couple resources that allow you to easily send support.
