Operation Float: Immokalee – Everyday Hero Project, Guadalupe Center distribute supplies to Irma victims

WHAT: As the Immokalee community recovers from Hurricane Irma, Guadalupe Center is partnering with non-profit organization, the Everyday Hero Project, to coordinate relief efforts in Southwest Florida.

Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, the Everyday Hero Project collaborates with like-minded business and community groups to solicit donations and directly serve identified communities and groups in need. The group has mobilized volunteers to distribute donated items including cleaning supplies, personal hygiene supplies, baby supplies, medical supplies, mold removal agents, gas cans, new socks and underwear, rebuilding supplies, and temporary family housing tents etc. In addition, volunteers will provide good Samaritan medical aid and emergency application assistance.

“Operation Float: Immokalee” will take place in Immokalee, one of the hardest hit communities in Collier County.

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 14 from noon, until supplies are distributed.

WHERE: 1410 Carson Road in Immokalee.

WHY: With the mission of breaking the cycle of poverty through education, Guadalupe Center has been working since the storm with several national and local agencies to provide temporary housing, repair and replacement services, temporary economic assistance, food, water and supplies. Guadalupe Center looks forward to completing the recovery process so that the Center’s children can fully return to school and educational activities helping us continue to break the cycle of poverty through education.
