D.O. MORE FORT MYERS
Organizations: Hurricane Ian Relief - Partnered with Cajun Navy Ground Force
D.O. More Fort Myers was founded during the natural disaster of Hurricane Ian in October of 2022. Hurricane Ian was the third-costliest weather disaster on record, and the deadliest hurricane to strike the state of Florida since the 1935 Labor Day hurricane. The city of Fort Myers was particularly hard hit, leaving millions without power in the storm's wake and numerous inhabitants forced to take refuge on their roofs. They were decimated by the storm surge, which destroyed nearly all standing structures and damaged both the Sanibel Causeway and the Matlacha bridge to Pine Island, entrapping those left on the islands for several days.
Our executive team and local Fort Myers residents teamed up with Cajun Navy Ground Force. When crisis support systems become overwhelmed, the Cajun Navy Ground Force backfills them with good citizens and donated resources. During the crisis aftermath caused by natural disasters, they believe good citizens want to help their neighboring communities but just need an effortless way to engage. D.O. More raised over $400 in montetary funds as well as donated itemized food and essential items for residents left in refugee.
