Manatee County schools join together to help community #MyakkaStrong
Hurricane Ian was traumatic for all residents of Manatee County. According to news reports, the aftermath of the storm in the small rural town of Myakka City is devastating. "100-year storm. This is it right here, buddy. This is a 100-year flood. I'm sure we've seen some, but not like this. Not like this," Veronica Young told FOX13 News.
Myakka City Elementary PTO quickly jumped into action on social media to help their community. A Facebook post reads:
"MYAKKA FAMILIES (& BEYOND!) We know that our community is suffering, and we're getting to work! We know that the biggest need right now is for gift cards (to places like Publix, Walmart, Lowes & even Goodwill), clothing & bedding. We have been working alongside our amazing MCES Principal Ricks to figure out the best way to organize, collect & distribute help & donations."
