Hurricane Irma

We are sending relief to Florida

Two weeks after Hurricane Harvey devastated coastal towns in Texas, Hurricane Irma, the strongest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic, struck Florida leaving  15 million without power.  Again at the ready, Gleaning was able to anticpate the storm’s path and position relief supplies in hard-hit areas before the storm even arrived!

Partnering with Trinity Baptist Church in Jacksonville and Christ Fellowship Church in West Palm Beach, we have delivered six tractor-trailer loads of humanitarian aid while simultaniously making preperations to ship at least ten more. 

This powerful storm made landfall in the United States mainland with sustained winds in excess of 140 mph and destroyed many Caribbean islands as a Category 5 hurricane. 

In anticipation of Irma’s strike, Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for all 67 Florida counties stating: “Hurricane Irma poses a severe threat to the entire State of Florida, and requires that timely precautions are taken to protect the communities, critical infrastructure, and general welfare of this State.”

If you would like to partner with Gleaning in this natural disaster response, now is the time to give.
