On September 28th, the Island of Fort Myers Beach was completely decimated by Hurricane Ian. Most of our residents lost their homes, businesses and way of life.
The Fort Myers Beach Community Foundation, and the Woman’s Club of Fort Myers Beach, two 501(c)3 organizations located on Fort Myers Beach, are working together to help our residents. Your money will go DIRECTLY into the hands of someone who lives in the 33931 zip code. Our beautiful Island has given many of you so many fantastic lifelong memories. We know many are in desperate need of your help.
“With the level of destruction caused by Hurricane Ian, the Fort Myers Beach Community Foundation realizes it is crucial to put out a plea to those near and far to make donations immediately to support the entire FMB community in their time of greatest need through the #WeAreFMB Fund. ~ Board Member, Kelly Smith
