Florida’s Disaster Fund – meant to aid those impacted by Hurricane Matthew – is now activated.
The fund – activated by Florida Governor Rick Scott – provides financial aid to communities in the state during times of response and recovery after a disaster like Hurricane Matthew that skirted the East coast, causing devastation to parts of Florida.
“Many families and businesses were impacted by Hurricane Matthew, and we are fully committed to ensuring every resource is available to help them. Activating the Florida Disaster Fund will give individuals across the country the opportunity to help those in need as we begin the recovery process following this storm. I continue to encourage all Floridians to look out for each other and work together to help our beautiful communities rebuild,” said Scott.
The private fund is administered by the Volunteer Florida Foundation. Those wanting to make a contribution to help those affected by the hurricane in Florida can click here.
One hundred percent of the funds raised go toward those in need. Donations made are tax-deductible.
