The Florida Public Transportation Association (FPTA) has started a donation drive for transit employees who were affected by Hurricane Irma in the State of Florida. Transit employees across Florida evacuated and re-located citizens to shelters for several weeks all over the state. Now that the storm has passed, it appears over 100 transit employees received damage to their houses, and some have lost everything.
Employees that reported damage lived in numerous areas, including Collier, Lee, Duval, Brevard, Volusia, Pinellas, and Monroe Counties. FPTA is seeking gift card donations to assist these individuals on the road to recovery. Any denomination is greatly appreciated.
