United Way of St. Johns County will be collecting canned goods for local food banks and also be there to answer any questions about recovery efforts and resources. They work collaboratively with the city, county, religious organizations and non-profits to share the same message with everyone, to dispel rumors and make sure people are getting the correct info. Examples of things United Way can provide information and resources for:
-Food (which pantries are stocked)
-Who to call for help
-How to file a claim
Pink Heals St. Johns County Chapter is a 100% volunteer organization run by local firefighters. It is primarily made up of Firefighters, Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders. The focus is to help those in our community that are battling life threatening illnesses including all forms of cancer. They help men, women and children during their battle and are proud to say that 100% of the donations received go back into the community. Pink Heals sell merchandise to fund their efforts and never use donated dollars to run the organization. “We encourage our fellow St. Johns County residents to consider donating locally, whatever the cause. When the money stays local you can be proud to know that you have made a difference right here at home.”
Honey Truck Company sells hyper local honey made by bees within St. Augustine. They harvested honey the day before Hurricane Irma came through and are calling it Swarm Surge. 10% of all Swarm Surge purchased will go towards purchasing food for the animals at the St. Johns County Pet Center.
