Mission Love Seeds is planning another trip to Immokalee, Fla., in April 2018 to help families still devastated by Hurricane Irma.
Families had very little before the massive storm. Every child lived below the poverty level and Hurricane Irma left these families with nothing.
Mission Love Seeds has been twice to deliver food, household items, bicycles and Christmas toys and more to the families. Destin residents and businesses and organizations were the major part of the success of those trips, and MLS hopes they can count on Destin to come through again.
“We will be filling 400 individual boxes with the items below,” said Barbi Carroll, founder of Mission Love Seeds. “Children and their families at the Pinecrest Elementary School will receive 350 of the boxes and the other 50 boxes will go to families at the Immokalee Seminole First Baptist Church.”
All the items below are still in much need, and donations or money need to be received by April 15.
Boxed shelf milk, white rice, tortillas, dry/can pinto beans, dry/can black beans, Vienna sausage, peanut butter, canned meats and other non-perishable food items. Also, dish soap, laundry detergent and body bar soap is needed.
“If you don’t have time to shop, we will do the shopping for you,” said Carroll. “No donation is too small. Every dollar adds up.”
Mail a check to Mission Love Seeds, 55 Country Club Dr. E, Destin, FL 32541 or donate online at http://www.missionloveseeds.org/donate.php.
Donations can also be dropped off at Mission Love Seeds, 55 Country Club Dr. E in Destin or call 850-865-1055.
