Saving Irene

In September 2017 Hurricane Irma made direct impact on  Irene’s home on Ramrod key.  Irene had a small farm where she grew organic vegetables; which she sold to local restaurants.  Among the restaurants were Louie’s Backyard and The Marquesa in Key West.  This was her main source of income .   The storm wiped out her farm.  She also lost her car   Her home was severely damaged   and the furniture was  destroyed.  She is still living in the home; as it is all she has. The purpose of this fund is to help Irene rebuild her life.  She needs repairs to her home. A reliable vehicle and money to restore her farm.  Please be as generous as you can be.  No donation is too small. Please share with all your friends who know and love Irene.
