Bringing Warmth to a Community - Five Weeks Post Michael

16 No, 2018

 

In the fifth week after hurricane Michael blasted through the Gulf Coast, one thing has remained the same, the dedication of the staff at the Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center. Despite many of its employees having lost their homes and a number of the CAC’s buildings sustaining damage, the group was back to work serving families of this community within one week of the storm.

In the weeks that have followed, GCCAC program staff and administrators alike have spent their time loading vehicles and going door to door or tent to tent locating current clients and community members in need, ensuring basic need are met, facilitating ongoing recuperation or relocation, and lending a familiar helping hand in an otherwise unfamiliar situation. 

“There is work to be done. Our community needs us now more than ever – we will not let them down in their time of need” said Lori Allen, GCCAC Executive Director.

With colder weather ever-present, teams from the GCCAC have been collecting and distributing life-saving heating devices along with coats, blankets, shoes and other much needed items to families in the worst hit areas of the community. A mission that could not be accomplished without the many donations and support coming from individuals and organizations all over the country.
