Hurricane Ian caused incalculable losses, grief, and stress to so many people in Southwest Florida including many of our fellow members.
In view of the devastation and disruption that Ian left, Everglades Region PCA canceled all 25th Anniversary events. Simultaneously we have organized The Everglades Hurricane Ian Disaster Relief initiative joining hands with the American Red Cross of South Florida.
Everglades Region PCA Board has committed to immediately donate $5,000 from funds previously allocated for the 25th Anniversary to the Everglades Hurricane Ian Disaster Relief initiative. We hope all Everglades Region members, Zone 12 and PCA members nationwide will make generous donations that in total, match or exceed the initial $5,000 contribution.
The American Red Cross is ready to accept your donations today, will promptly process your donation and provide a receipt. Time is of the essence.
As an added incentive, the first 50 individuals who make a donation of $100 or more will receive a bespoke Everglades Region 25th Anniversary hat. Hats will be distributed locally or shipped to the address you provide.
Everglades Region has shown time and time again that we support our local communities and worthy organizations. Making a direct donation is a first for Everglades Region. We pray this is a once-in-a-lifetime disaster. This presents a compelling opportunity for the Region, our members, and the broader PCA membership to show our commitment to public service at this time of great need.
