The Tampa Bay region was largely spared by Hurricane Ian last week. Our neighbors down south fared terribly— and now they’re dealing with the aftereffects of one of the strongest storms on record.
We shared some ways to help Hurricane Ian victims last week, but new additional efforts are popping up — because Tampa Bay is full of good people.
- Big Catch at Salt Creek is hosting a $25 Fish Fry supporting the Red Cross Hurricane Ian relief efforts in Florida. Stop by tonight after work for the fresh seafood meal including: golden fried fish, coleslaw, and french fries.
- Creative Loafing Tampa Bay’s “Best of the Bay” party was rescheduled due to the storm. Now booked for Thursday, Oct. 6, the party — which celebrates local businesses, etc. of the year — will give back part of the proceeds to relief efforts.
- Mutual Aid Disaster Relief has set up a hub at Waters Avenue Church, 609 W. Waters Ave., where folks can drop off water bottles, baby supplies, non-perishable food, hygiene products, and more to be taken to Fort Myers.
