Saturday, September 2, 2017 (Belle Isle, FL) On Wednesday, organizers begin collecting everything from water to diapers for their event “I-4 to Texas”… a Central Florida effort to provide relief to victims in Texas as a result of hurricane Harvey.
“We started out at 6am Wednesday with a box of diapers and a 12 pack of bottled water. To think we are on a way to filling 5 semi trailer trucks is simply amazing,. by partnering with the disaster relief side of Americorps and with a team of volunteers from Orange and Lake Counties escorting the donations to Texas, we can ensure the community’s donations will make it directly into the hands of those in need,” said event organizer Randy Ross.
Today, Saturday, September 2nd, 8am -5pm.
Tomorrow, Sunday, September 3rd, 8am – Noon.
Press Conference and tractor trailer sendoff:
