HurricaneMichael-Ga Boys Ride Again

33749460_1539654562295623_r.jpegLooks like Mother Nature is at it again and our fellow man / woman / child needs a hand.

For the past number of years we and and a few friends have always responded to such events in our own way in disaster areas (Harvey in Houston, Sandy in NJ, Irma in Georgia, etc.).  We have often brought truckloads of needed supplies to areas typically outside the media’s main attention, yet areas just as effected.   We are about to embark on another venture to South Georgia / Florida next week as a result of Hurricane Michaels path of destruction. 

In NJ (Super Storm Sandy), we were called the “Georgia Boys”, and the Georgia Boys are ready to ride again.  As with all relief trips, surprised of how grateful and badly supplies are needed to perhaps overlooked areas and outside the main agencies.  We also learned a bit each time of really what to bring (water and cleaning supplies including bleach are key).  Also interesting is that time and again there are many Americans like us out there doing the same thing without notice – really great when we see this happening.

We are looking for immediate donations to help be they small or large.  This trip is planned for October 20 - 21 and thus will be filling the truck this coming week and thus the immediate need for donations.  We are going to try to arrange the same tax-deduction approach as last year, however, for now all donations should be considered as if they were not tax deductible.  We will update the Go-Fund-Me page as soon as we have confirmation on the tax deduction status.   We plan to take 1-3 trucks depending on the donations to fill the trucks.

Like before, we will conclude the trip with a report back to all donors to show you where your generous donations went with full accountability.

Thank you in advance and we greatly appreciate your consideration to help those in need.

Best,

David Eichenblatt     Steve Yeager
