Help a Hero with Hurricane Relief

I'm setting this campaign up for my friend, Gregg Perlman. Gregg is a Florida State Trooper assigned to the Florida Keys and his home and possessions were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Irma. Gregg is just now able to get back to his home to because he's been working non-stop disaster recovery for the area. Gregg and his 3 beloved rescue dogs have been living out of hotels since and the Florida Highway Patrol has placed a RV trailer on his property so he can continue to live and work in the area while he begins repairs and recovery. I served with Gregg for a while in the Navy a long time ago and he and I were close. He always had my back and he is one of the most interesting characters I've ever met. We were both Floridians, and made our way back home after our service. I became a police officer in Central Florida and Gregg became a state trooper and has been assigned to various parts of the state. Gregg continued his affiliation with the military by joining the reserves and he was a member of the Air Force Reserve and he very recently, and at an older age, signed back up for the Navy, and joined the Navy Reserve. Gregg found paradise in The Keys as a trooper, and he enjoys serving the people there. The long highway bridges in and out of The Keys are challenging to patrol, but he's never complained once. Gregg is a generous person and always has been. Gregg has three rescue dogs that he treats as his children and he takes them everywhere with him. Gregg loves boating, barbecuing, cooking, classic films, hanging out with friends, cars and decorating for Halloween and Christmas. Gregg is a man who loves his country, state and community and he has been in service to others nearly his entire life. While others are picking up the pieces, making repairs and getting their lives back together, Gregg is limited due to his trooper duties and reserve commitments. Please do what you can to help a true American hero and good human being get back on his feet. Thank you
