HURRICANE IAN RELIEF – ARCADIA & PORT CHAROLETTE, FLORIDA

Eagles Wings, with generous donations from individuals and Hedrick Brothers plus The Arnold Foundation, has been able to return now multiple times into the impacted area to distribute more relief supplies.

The United Methodist Church in Port Charlotte had contacted EWF following its pastor hearing about how well received the donations were in Arcadia's Methodist church.

As roof tarps remained the priority, the PBC Food Project donated a substantial amount of canned goods which were immediately distributed as well. Though we had a smaller group of volunteers this past Sunday, close to 5 tons of food and miscellaneous supplies were handed out, with another roughly 1,200 large roof tarps.

Donations which we have received have allowed us to continue and are much appreciated, though we still remain focused on Eagles Wings primary mission area – the Caribbean Basin!
