HURRICANE SALLY - SEPTEMBER 16, 2020
Your donations are needed!
On September 16, 2020 - exactly 16 years after Hurricane Ivan wrecked the coasts of Southern Alabama and Northwest Florida, another devastating storm landed on those same shores as a strong Category 2 hurricane.
Hurricane Sally created havoc across the region not only because of its strength, but also because of its unpredictable path. Sally's quick turn to the northeast was unexpected by those in the community, leaving everyone unprepared and shell shocked.
What we need most right now is your contribution of support
that will allow us to purchase much-needed basic necessities
such as water, ice, tarps, cleaning supplies and the like.
Over the next few days, we will be assessing the specific needs and will update this page with items that can be donated. Please check back here or on our Facebook page.
If you are able, please make a donation to our Hurricane Sally disaster relief fund. Follow the link below and know that your help will go directly to those who need it most.

TARP DISTRIBUTION EVENTS
Over the last week, you may have noticed us promoting several Catholic Charities-hosted tarp distribution events around town: St. Rosa of Lima (Milton), Holy Spirit (Gulf Beach Highway), St. Anne (Bellview), St. Anne (Gulf Breeze), and the Sixth Avenue location of Catholic Charities. Hundreds of tarps and cases of water were handed out to people who are suffering from Hurricane Sally damage.
