Weeks after Hurricane Irma made landfall on south Florida, many parts of the Florida Keys are still left in devastation. The category 4 storm hit the Florida Keys on September 10, destroying an estimated 25 percent of homes on the islands, leaving other parts with major flooding, damage, without electricity, and worst of all – a rising death toll.
In an effort to help fellow Floridians, the moving professionals at All My Sons Moving & Storage of Fort Lauderdale teamed up alongside the Florida Panthers, the Dan Marino Foundation, South Florida Ford Dealers, and other local businesses to bring relief to those who were most severely affected by the widespread disaster. Thousands of items were donated and the efforts were organized at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, the home of the Florida Panthers.
On September 19, Florida Highway Patrol Officers and Sunrise Law Enforcement escorted 20 plus trucks, loaded with over 80 pallets of donations down to the keys, weighing in at an estimated 30,000 pounds of supplies. These pallets were full of items the Keys’ residents needed the most: nonperishable food, water, batteries, and other necessities donated by south Florida residents.
The Fort Lauderdale moving company, All My Sons Moving & Storage, sent two of their moving trucks with a team of drivers to assist in hauling the 80 pallets down. They were able to make multiple stops throughout those areas most affected, including Big Pine Key, Cudjoe Key, and Key West, delivering supplies and offering assistance.
This #FloridaStrong initiative showed how the south Florida communities came together in a time of disaster to help our fellow Floridians. All My Sons Moving & Storage is committed to assisting those impacted by Hurricane Irma.
