One year after Hurricane Irma’s landfall, the heavy hit Florida Keys are still rebuilding. With a caravan of semi-trucks loaded with furniture and appliances, Farm Share continues to assist those still struggling to rebuild. In the past year since Hurricane Irma, Farm Share has provided Keys residents with financial assistance, loads of mattresses, clothing and food.

In coordination with US Senator Marco Rubio’s office, the Monroe County Long-Term Recovery Group, and various “boots on the ground” non-profits working directly with victims of Hurricane Irma, pre-vetted families currently in disaster case management will be provided with needed items at a one day “Day of Hope” on Monday September 10–the one-year anniversary of the storm making landfall in Monroe County.

The Day of Hope will be held at San Pablo Catholic Church, 550 122nd Street Ocean in Marathon, on Monday, September 10 from 11 am until 2 pm. Pre-vetted victims of Hurricane Irma who are under case management supervision are able to receive furniture, appliances, and food.  Distribution is by appointment only.

Farm Share, a non-profit organization headquartered in Homestead, FL, alleviates hunger and fights poverty by recovering and distributing healthy and nutritious fruits, vegetables, proteins and other non-perishable food to Florida families, children, seniors and individuals in need. Through a kind donation received by Farm Share, families will receive furniture and appliances – compliments of a private donor.

“Partnerships are the success of Farm Share,” stated Stephen R. Shelley. “Partnerships provide the product and partnerships assist Farm Share in connecting the product to the person who needs it.”
