Sarasota was once again spared from the worst part of Hurricane Ian.  However, our neighbors to the south in Lee County and portions of Charlotte County were less fortunate.  In times like these we often feel a bit helpless, but there are ways we can help.

There are many reputable organizations to donate to help those who will inevitably need assistance in these times.  Here is a short list of a few:

Florida Disaster Fund:  To contribute, please visit or text DISASTER to 20222

American Red Cross: Donate online by visiting or to o donate by phone, 1-800-HELP NOW (1-800-435-7669)
