HOMESTEAD AIR RESERVE BASE, Fl. --
Below are links of some local charities that are actively supporting Hurricane Irma relief efforts:
"Volunteer Florida is the state’s lead agency for volunteers and donations before, during, and after disasters. Volunteer Florida mobilizes and deploys resources to assist those responding to and recovering from disasters.
In response to Hurricane Irma, Volunteer Florida is mobilizing volunteers to staff our state’s shelters and other disaster relief organizations."
Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida:
"The Harry Chapin Food Bank, Feeding America, Feeding Florida, and other disaster responder organizations continue to work closely to rapidly respond to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Together we will be helping to identify and meet the needs across affected areas."
The Air Force does not endorse specific charities and is creating awareness for charities that are supporting the local community.
