Place of Hope has been asked to lend a helping hand to the Florida Keys after the devastation they have faced from Hurricane Irma. Our staff, children and youth will be assembling “Care Kits” that will be driven down on Tuesday morning, September 19. Our goal is to obtain enough financial support and items to assemble 500 kits.
Place of Hopes Founding CEO, Charles Bender, has been in contact with the Emergency Operations Center that is on the ground in Big Pine and Sugar Loaf Keys. Both of these areas were some of the hardest areas hit. The Emergency Operations Center in this area has two points of distribution that will go directly where there is the most need. We have been granted access.
