Proffitt PR & Destin Commons Coordinating Hurricane Michael Relief in Okaloosa County

October 14, 2018 by Proffitt PR

Several local businesses have come together in order to gather supplies and raise funds for those directly affected by Hurricane Michael.

The Category 4 storm caused an overwhelming amount of damage to Panama City, Panama City Beach, Mexico Beach, Lynn Haven, and Apalachicola, Fla. Since it’s devastating landfall on October 10, locals have jumped at the opportunity to help aid relief efforts in any way possible.  

In an effort to gather the most supplies as possible and create a centralized donation hub, Backroads Sports Network has teamed up with local businesses including the Bean Team, Brotula’s Seafood House and Steamer, Century 21 Blue Marlin Pelican, Chi-Mar Construction, Cuvée Kitchen + Wine Bar, Destin Commons, The Henderson Beach Resort and Spa, Jackacuda’s Seafood and Sushi, Setco Services, and Step One Automotive Group, in order to help those in Bay County by creating and hosting one collective, grand effort at Destin Commons.

Destin Commons will be housing a drop-off location with a semi-truck parked in between Bass Pro Shops and World of Beer that will be collecting all donations from 7 a.m. until midnight every day between now and Saturday, October 27. Those who are unable to make it to Destin Commons may drop off their donations at Brotula’s, Century 21 Blue Marlin Pelican’s Destin location, Cuvée Kitchen, or Jackacuda’s to be delivered to the main drop-off site at Destin Commons. All donations of any kind are welcome and appreciated.

If anyone would like to make a monetary donation to go towards the purchase of supplies, please visit one of the following:
www.FloridaDisasterFund.org or text Disaster to 20222
www.Redcross.org or text Michael to 90999
