Farmworkers Across the State Impacted by Hurricane Ian
FWAF Area Coordinators/Organizers – in Pierson, Apopka, Fellsmere, Immokalee and Homestead – are on the ground since the hurricane, identifying the needs and impacts in our communities in five areas of the state and have been assisting families with emergency food and water. These are still the initial days since the brunt of the hurricane hit, and there is still much to learn about the breadth of the destruction. FWAF staff will be conducting needs assessments to determine immediate and long-term needs. Some of the hardest hit areas are in locations where FWAF does not have an office, but we are reaching out to ally organizations, and offering help to families who are stranded due to road closures or bridge collapse. We are working ‘round the clock to help those whose work feeds us every day. Please consider making a donation today.
