Hurricane Irma--Tampa/Miami

Hello all.  I am Robin Brooks from Tampa, Florida.  One of our Global teammates has lost his home to Hurricane Irma.  Buddy Campbell is our Tampa Warehouse Manager.  He lives on the Alafia River. This photo is from September 11th.  He was renting this property and did not have renters/flood insurance.  Today, the water rose another 4 ft and his entire first floor is under water from the Alafia River.  Tomorrow the river is scheduled to crest.  We have put him in a hotel and as a team will help him clean out whatever is salvageable.   When he went to the property, he was greeted at the door with his floating washer and dryer.  Flood water is not only powerful put very filthy.  He is currently looking for a new home and as his Global Family I am requesting any assistance you can provide.  If we all pitch in a small bit, it will relieve the financial burden of reestablishing his household.  Please help if you have the means...it will truly be appreciated and I assure you it will go to help only those in true need.  The funds wil specifically be spent to secure a deposit on a new home and buy furnishings that were destroyed by the flood water, couch, tables, linens, etc....once the fund is closed I will withdraw the funds and give them to him and post what the funds were used for.  Thank you.   Robin Brooks  General Manager Operations-Tampa & Miami
