MSG FROM FL DIVISION OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

PLEASE READ THIS MEESAGE FROM: The Florida Division of Emergency Management We’re beginning to get in some reports of donation drives in Florida designed to assist Harvey survivors. Texas has yet to identify any needs and at this point has no ability to deal with any donations they receive, no matter how well-intentioned. Please help get the word out to your communities and local elected officials that right now the best way to assist is through cash donations to a recognized charity. Here’s a link you can use: https://www.nvoad.org/ Bryan W. Koon Director Florida Division of Emergency Management Office: (850) 815-4100 Mobile: (850) 519-7966 www.FloridaDisaster.org
