Our work before and during the pandemic earned the WD Neighborhood Safety Committee the 2nd Place Award for the City's Best Social Program Improvement.
POSTPONED TO 2022 DUE TO COVID PANDEMIC
For the past 30 years, I have fulfilled my passion through serving the public before, during, and after a disaster. In my neighborhood, the greatest concern is hurricanes. As a volunteer, I serve as the coordinator of our neighborhood's SOUTHSIDE HURRICANE SAFETY FEST. I'm appealing to you for your help.
When a disaster hits, one of the first things people do is reach out to those closest to them: neighbors and loved ones. Knowing this, we want to strengthen neighborhood bonds that are vital before and after a hurricane hits.
Serving our neighbors in Apalachee Ridge, Blairstone Forest, Indianhead-Lehigh, Myers Park, South City and Woodland Drives
The CHARITABLE PORTION of our event is to provide much needed hurricane supplies to low income families who might otherwise be unable to afford them. We hope to provide 300 sets of supplies.
Each set of supplies - as listed by the City of Tallahassee through their Neighborhood PREP Program - costs $100. Please help us reach our $30,000 goal which will provide 300 full sets of hurricane supplies. You can donate here: http://wooddrives.com/southside_hurricane_fest.html
