Hurricane Michael left a 40-mile wide path of complete destruction throughout the rural counties of Calhoun County, Liberty Country, and Jackson County. My hometown of Blountstown, FL is completely unrecognizable! Hundreds of people were left with nothing and more were trapped inside or underneath their homes due to the extensive tree damage. Gas is sparse. Food is scavaged for by many. And since the vast majority of citizens draw their water from wells, they also have no water. Looting is becoming a serious problem for what most people call a quiet little town. People are scared and are fighting for basic survival needs.
The objective of this campaign is to raise funds to supply these counties with food, water, and gas. We will also be providing chainsaws and generators to those in need. FEMA has declared these counties as a state of natural disaster, but their efforts are currently focused on more populated areas in Bay and Gulf county at this time, leaving these rural areas to fend for themselves.
Currently, Dalton Trucking out of Victoria, TX is in Blountstown, FL cooking as many free hot meals as they possibly can. But, supplies are running out. There is very little gas for the generators and food is almost gone. On Friday, October 12th, Dalton Trucking provided 3000 people with a hot meal. They are expecting even more as time goes by. I, Jonelle Dudley, with Binnacle Marketing, have partnered with Dalton Trucking to raise supplies to keep this effort ongoing.
Please help us support these rural areas! If you have materials and supplies that you would like to donate locally to the Tallahassee or Big Bend area, please email email@example.com
