My name is Jordan Smith, I live and work in Key West, FL. I operate the Key West Flying Club and am a volunteer for AeroBridge who's mission is to assist in times of catastrophic emergency by coordinating aircraft to provide a powerful, immediate response to disaster.
Families have lost everything! We have pilots and people with aircraft who also live in the Keys who have volunteered their time and aircraft to help fly in emergency medial supplies to victims and first responders.
These funds will be used solely to put gas into aircraft which will fly under the Aerobridge banner "Compassion Flight."
Thru Aerobridge, we are relocating supplies from Austin, TX and staging them in Lakeland, FL. We are also picking up supplies all across the US and getting them ready to distribute to the Florida Keys from our base at Sun N' Fun at Lakeland, FL.
The operational costs of these airplanes are being paid for by the pilots. Help us keep airplanes in the air by keeping them fueled to help save lives and deliver a glimmer of hope for the Florida Keys. At the time I created this, EVERY SINGLE ISLAND of the Florida Keys is being destroyed by Hurricane Irma.
We are a tight community that is strong and resilient. We will survive, we will rebuild. If you love the Florida Keys, please donate to help us rebuild our community.
God Bless and God Speed.
