Today is the day! #VOAFL is beginning to distribute donated furniture from Caracole to families affected by the hurricanes in The Florida Keys & Key West! There is still a need for volunteers if you’d like to come help out (www.signupgenius.com/go/409044bafac29a2fa7-hurricane)! Thank you to SOS Foundation at 2922 North Roosevelt Blvd Key West, FL 33040 (SOS Mission) for the warehouse space. This location is in the same plaza as a Publix & Kmart. There will be yellow “FurnishAID” arrows to lead you to the location. You know you’ve reached the correct destination in the rear of the building when you see the SOS Mission Van. Thank you as well to Ocean Reef Community Foundation for your tremendous support with making this happen!
*Please note, all furniture has been assigned to individuals and will only be going to those that have been contacted.

Thank you Greystone Health Network for choosing #VOAFL as one of your volunteer destinations this past Thursday! It was a pleasure and honor to work beside you as you built new patio chairs, created 4 community gardens, power washed the buildings and much more! The #Veterans living here at the James Cole Village in City of Tampa Government are so excited to watch their fruits and vegetables grow as well as fill their belly's with their hard work. Thank you again, we look forward to working with you again in the near future!
