Independent Funeral Directors of FL

$3,300 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 1 month
The Florida  panhandle was hit hard by Hurricane Michael, a category 4 hurricane on Wednesday, October 10, 2018.  Many communities have been devastated. Families have lost all their homes, their possessions as well as loved ones. 

The Independent Funeral Directors of Florida is a 501(c)(6) organization dedicated to family owned and operated funeral homes throughout the State of  Florida. Several of our member Funeral Homes have  suffered damage from the storm and are continuing to operate 24/7  despite not having electricity or telephone service throughout much of the area.

Funds raised through this campaign will go to assist Independent Funeral Homes affected by Hurricane Michael.  We hope to help them  get back on their feet so that they may continue to serve the families in their communities during their darkest hour. 

We will also be providing hurricane relief to the families they serve as they deal with the loss of a loved one in the midst of this disaster.

We are humbled by the response to our request for hurricane relief. We have raised $3,450 including donations by check, that are not included in the GoFundMe totals.

We have been able to help families in Blountstown, Marianna and Port St. Joe. We have delivered a generator, gasoline, diesel, toiletries and personal items, cleaning supplies, non-perishable snacks and food items, fresh fruit, baby items, and paper goods. The need of so many is so great.

One funeral home had 3 ft. of water which destroyed almost all of their furnishings, and two funeral vehicles. Another lost a preparation room and had damage to the chapel. Still others are without power and phone communication is still hit or miss.

What has been so amazing is the willingness of those who have lost so much to pay it forward and help others.

Thank you so much for being the community of public servants that you are!
