South Florida voluntary bars deliver hurricane relief
The Broward County Bar Association, ABOTA Ft. Lauderdale, and other South Florida voluntary bar associations collected and delivered relief supplies for Hurricane Ian victims in Lee County.
“The devastation in Lee County is overwhelming,” the groups said in a statement. “The folks there need our help.”
Organizers requested donations that include first aid kits, batteries, flashlights, water, battery operated and crank-up radios, canned goods, air mattresses and blankets, household cleaning supplies, trash bags, gloves, buckets, mops and detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, mosquito repellent and sunscreen, solar lanterns and lamps, and non-perishable food items such as crackers, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, powdered milk, pancake mix, granola bars, rice, sugar, and juice boxes. Organizers also requested toys for children, including crayons, coloring books, art sets, and battery powered toys.
“We had a wonderful response from our community,” said Braulio Rosa, executive director of the Broward County Bar.
The BCBA coordinated with the Salvation Army to distribute the supplies.
