Sneads Receives First North Florida Cares Donations
The Sneads community received our first North Florida Cares donations on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018. North Florida Cares is our long-term Hurricane Michael relief project for North Florida's hardest-hit communities.
Located in Jackson County, near Lake Seminole and the town of Chattahoochee, Sneads is a rural community with a population of around 2,000. The eye of Hurricane Michael passed very close to Sneads. Power restoration is still underway; many homes and buildings remain damaged as the community continues clean-up and repairs.
We delivered a carload of clothing, diapers, paper products and toiletries to Salem Wesleyan Church in Sneads. Several congregants are local teachers. They divided the products to share to their students whose families are in need.
The North Floirda Cares relief project is a long-term effort, because for many communities, hurricane recovery will take months or years. We want to ensure they aren't forgotten.
We accept physical donations in our OB and GYN lobbies at 1401 Centerville Road, Suite 202. Our donation bins accept water bottles, toiletries, feminine hygiene products, diapers and wet wipes, pet food, baby formula, paper goods and canned/nonperishable food items. Physical supplies are just one way that people can give to this relief project. We also have a PayPal link on our main North Florida Cares project page. If you have a skill or service to donate, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help coordinate your skillset with someone in need. Also, if you or someone you know is in need of relief, please email the request to email@example.com. We will evaluate requests and coordinate assistance as funds and donations allow.
