    HOW TO HELP HURRICANE MICHAEL VICTIMS: WHAT YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


    Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, October 10th, wreaking havoc on the communities that lay in its path. The Category 4 storm, one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the continental United States in 50 years, brought heavy winds, rain, and flooding to the Florida panhandle and Gulf Coast, as well as Georgia, Virginia, and the Carolinas, which are still recovering from Hurricane Florence. At least 11 people died because of the storm. The affected communities need help rebuilding.
    Here’s how you can help: Beginning Monday, October 15th, a trailer will be located in Trading Post’s PARK’N’Sell area, 3100 Highway 441 S – across from Holiday Inn and Pizza Hut. The following items are needed desperately by Hurricane Michael’s surviving victims:
    • Bedding
    • Blankets
    • Tents
    • Tarps
    • Paper Products
    • Personal Hygiene Products
    • Canned Food
    • Tools – Powered and Manual
    • Landscaping Tools – Saws, Gas-powered leaf blowers, Axes
    • People willing to caravan to the Panhandle and assist with repairs
    Please place your donated items in the trailer. Local rancher Hobert Lee will deliver the items to the Panhandle the latter part of the week (October 13-19th). Those willing to caravan to the Panhandle to assist with repairs should contact Raye Deusinger by emailing: rayedeusinger@gmail.com
    This Hurricane Michael Relief Effort is co-sponsored by Okeechobee Chamber of Commerce, One Blood representatives, Okeechobee Sheriff Noel Stephen and deputies, The Trading Post Farmers Market and the Okeechobee community.
