Unlike Jerry Seinfeld's fictional Del Boca Vista which cannot be harmed by extreme weather events, millions of people in the real Florida and Houston, and the Caribbean have been impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma -- and soon to be Maria.  If you are inclined to help, please let me know or follow the links below:

I have contacted the five rotary clubs in the Florida Keys and asked them what they need most.  Two have responded so far and both requested building supplies in the form of Home Depot gift cards that they will distribute to needy people in their areas.  

In addition, Rotary International has set up this site to collect donations.

Also, ShelterBox is a Rotary supported not for profit that provides temporary shelters to victims of weather and other unrest.  Here is the ShelterBox website.

The Red Cross is also a highly regarded place to donate.

Let me know if you want to get more involved.  (jaycleon@gmail.com)
