The Florida Justice Association’s not-for-profit arm, the FJA Research and Education Foundation, is hoping to build on an already impressive fundraising drive for Hurricane Ian victims.

FJA staff recently told Florida Politics that the effort generated $30,000 in the first 24 hours, and quickly grew to $50,000.

“FJA members and legal organizations came together to help Floridians tackle the enormous task of putting their communities back together after Hurricane Ian,” the group said in a statement.

FJA volunteers and staff on October 1 “began facilitating the delivery of much needed supplies with the help of the Salvation Army” in Ft. Myers, the group said.

The delivery included food, water, generators, chain saws, and other supplies.

The effort continues, and all money raised will go directly to hurricane relief, the group said.
