In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Centric Miami team members sprawled out across the community to lend a hand to those in need.
After Hurricane Irma, much of South Florida was left without power for days, even weeks in some places. And some places were devastated.
The Centric Miami team took to their local communities to lend a hand by passing out water, ice and food. Some team members also helped local families pick up the pieces of their lives. Or they tapped on friends, family and colleagues to contribute to relief efforts.
Here’s more on our team’s outpouring of support for battered hometowns:
- Jansen Pennock teamed up with the Venture Café team and commissioner Ken Russell to distribute supplies to those without power.
- Yaquelyn Sanchez, her husband and two young sons, teamed up with Town of Miami Lakes Mayor Manny Cid and Council to pass out ice to those without power. They also collected donations from family, friends and the community to send two truckloads of hygiene products, canned goods, water and other essentials to Key West seniors, first responders and residents in need.
- Chris Martinez trekked to the Florida Keys to help a friend cut through debris and salvage what he could from his home, which took on water from Irma’s storm surge.
- Yudy Pineiro led an effort to collect and donate school supplies for Florida Keys schools, primarily Marathon’s middle and high school students, who were left with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
