CONGRATULATIONS TO SCOTT VIEHMAN

6-YEAR OLD BAILEE IS THE FIRST TO DONATE UNUSED HURRICANE SUPPLIES FOR THOSE IN NEED. 

Hurricane Irma has come and gone. Overall as a community we have been blessed to have been spared the wrath of this hurricane with the exception of a few in our community that were hit hard. But as we all know that is not the case a short distance south of us in southwest Florida. Cedar Hammock Fire Rescue and COTC Church-have teamed up to send immediate relief. We are asking if you have any extra non-perishable items such as bottled water, first aid kits, baby supplies, disposable diapers, wipes, formula, dog and cat food, hand sanitizer, new/packaged underwear, granola bars,

crackers, batteries, flashlights, portable generators, etc. that you would like to donate. Two drop off areas:
Cedar Hammock Station 1 located  at 5200 26th Street West – office hours are Monday-Thursday from 7 am to 5 pm –
or Church Of The Cross Church Lobby at 5051 26th Street West.
