Thoughts, Payers and More … Helping Victims of Hurricane Ian


Marile and I hope our brief note finds you and yours safe and well.

Know we are thinking of you all and wanted to check in on your well-being.

We join in prayer for those affected, those now in its path, and in gratitude that our local community escaped the full furry of Hurricane Ian.

Tonight, Ian is a hurricane again, heading for Georgia and Carolinas; sustained winds intensified to 75 mph.

As Red Cross volunteers, donors, and Board members — Marile and I want to update you on the Red Cross Hurricane Ian response, mission delivery and how you can help.

Wednesday night, more than 33,000 people sought refuge in approximately 260 Red Cross evacuation shelters across Florida to escape Hurricane Ian

The Red Cross has also:

  • Pre-positioned Emergency response vehicles across the state.
  • Dispatched 730 trained Red Cross disaster workers with hundreds more on the way.
  • Sent hundreds of blood products to Florida.
  • Mobilized 83 truckloads of additional cots, blankets and comfort kits, along with tens of thousands of relief supplies, to be prepared to help as many as 60,000 people.

The Red Cross is working closely with the entire response community — government agencies, other non-profit groups, faith-based organizations, area businesses and others — to make sure people get the help they need as quickly as possible.

We know that many of you will want to support those affected — to contribute, pleases visit or text the word IAN to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone adversely affected by this catastrophic storm.

As always, thank you for sharing this time with us…

Warmest personal regards,

Marile & Jorge Luis Lopez, Esq.

Volunteers, Donors & South Florida Red Cross Board Members
