Recovery from Hurricane Ian is going strong in the Gulf Coast of Florida. Gulf Coast Community Foundation provided a $20,000 Hurricane Ian Recovery Initiative grant to Praying Pelican Missions to assist Sarasota, DeSoto, Charlotte, and Lee County neighbors requiring assistance with home repair needs and basic humanitarian aid post-storm. Praying Pelican Missions, an international organization, is on the frontlines of response and relief efforts after disaster strikes. Gulf Coast’s Director of Community Leadership, Dr. Kameron Hodgens, recently visited with Praying Pelican Missions on-site to learn more about their work. “Gulf Coast is honored to support Praying Pelican Missions as our region continues the arduous work of recovering from Hurricane Ian. The volunteers visiting our area weekly as a part of this organization selflessly assist homeowners with the overwhelming tasks of yard and home cleanup. The work they are doing is life changing and truly commendable,” said Dr. Hodgens. Volunteers fly into Sarasota every week to donate a week of hurricane cleanup service and will do so through the summer. They plan to work in the area fulltime.
