To say that the aftermath of hurricane Dorian destroying much of the Bahamas is catastrophic is to understate what we see with our own eyes on TV and in the newspapers. It is overwhelming to see how many homes and lives have been devastated by this hurricane.
Like many of you, I want our Office to reach out and help as much as possible. I am sure each of you would like to help as well.
We are working with local partners, including the Miami Fire Department to assist with relief efforts.
We have been advised that the following items are needed:
Diapers & Baby Wipes
First Aid Items
Leather Work Gloves
*No clothing please
If you would like to donate any of the above items, we will have collection boxes in the following locations starting tomorrow (Wednesday, September 3):
Graham Building – Mail Room
Child Support Program – 15th Floor Conference Room
Children’s Courthouse – 8th Floor
Civic Park Plaza – 5th Floor (in front of Lizette Soubal’s Office)
Courthouse Center – Maria Gomez’s Office
Human Trafficking Task Force Building – Carmen Duran’s Office
David Maer, from our Community Outreach Division, will be managing our initiative to assist those affected. As soon as we have more information on how we can help in the most significant way, we will email you the details.
I know we can make a difference. In the meantime, please keep all those affected in your thoughts and prayers.
