Casey DeSantis Showcases Private Entity Support of the Florida Disaster Fund

On Monday, Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis visited Adamec Harley-Davidson in Jacksonville to spotlight private entity support of the Florida Disaster Fund, which has raised over $45 million to help with recovery in communities impacted by Hurricane Ian.

Private sector entities across the state are pitching in to support the Fund in unique ways, including Adamec Harley-Davidson who is selling a Florida Hurricane Relief t-shirt, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the Florida Disaster Fund. Businesses that want to learn how to get involved can call 850-414-7400.

“The governor and I greatly appreciate the groundswell of support for the Florida Disaster Fund,” said First Lady DeSantis. “Whether it’s a sizeable donation or proceeds from a product or a few dollars, we are thankful for every contribution as it will go a long way in helping Floridians recover and rebuild.”

First Lady DeSantis was joined by Volunteer Florida CEO Josie Tamayo along with representatives from Jacksonville-based contributors to the Florida Disaster Fund, including Florida Blue, CSX and Daily’s.

The Florida Disaster Fund, spearheaded by First Lady DeSantis, is the state’s private fund overseen by Volunteer Florida. Gov. Ron DeSantis and First Lady DeSantis have awarded $3 million through the Florida Disaster Fund to date. Already, $2 million was awarded to four first responder organizations which have had members impacted by Hurricane Ian, and an initial $1 million was distributed to organizations engaged in Hurricane Ian recovery efforts in the immediate aftermath.

The Florida Disaster Fund is the state of Florida’s official private fund established to provide financial assistance to our communities as they respond to and recover from times of emergency or disaster. In partnership with public, private, and other non-governmental organizations, the Florida Disaster Fund supports response and recovery activities.
