Mission Love Seeds is now responding to the needs of Hurricane Irma in south Florida and will deliver water, food, pet food, school supplies and other supplies to one of the hardest hit areas from Hurricane Irma.

The trucks will load up in approximately two weeks to go to Immokalee, Florida. Pastor Josh Leadingfox and Jennifer Lynn, who works at a school in Immokalee and knows the kids and their families, are busy helping Mission organize the relief efforts there.

“We realize it's a very long drive from Destin, but we will always go where we feel called by God to go help his people,” said Carroll.

Immokalee is an area that was hit hard. The families are field and packinghouse workers and will not have work for weeks to come.

Just think what you would need to restart your life … toothbrushes, toothpaste, diapers, baby wipes, water, soap, cleaning supplies, trash bags, towels etc.

It was Lynn’s idea to collect backpacks and fill them with food and snacks for the weekend. If you can' t afford to fill a backpack, please just give as much food and snacks as you can. Mission Love Seeds would like to be able to help refill those backpacks for weeks and months to come.

Donations can be dropped off at Real Joy Properties, 4014 Commons Drive Suite 100. Call 850-424-3094 before coming. Another drop-off location is Mission Love Seeds, 55 Country Club Dr. E. Check donations can be mailed to this address also.

Call or text Mission Love Seeds at 850-865-1055. Visit missionloveseeds.org to donate or see complete list of needs. Information and updates will be available on Facebook at Mission Love Seeds Charity.

No donation is too small. Every penny goes to help the families. The food and supplies will be delivered as soon as there are enough supplies and funds to rent trucks and pay for fuel.

“We need everyone to come together and help, like you did after Hurricane Harvey,” said Barbi Carroll, founder of Mission Love Seeds. “If you can't help, please pray others who can help will — and also pray for safe trip.”
