Volunteer Group Helps At Moore Haven Event

C.R.E.W Attends Glades Hurricane Info Day

MOORE HAVEN, FLORIDA - A Hurricane Information Day and Community
Picnic was held at the Moore Haven City Park on September 9,
sponsored by the Glades County Emergency Management Department. CREW
gave out balloons and candy as Project Hope painted faces making it a
fun day for the kids. The kids had fun while the adults learned how
to better prepare for hurricanes.

CREW, with the help of Palmdale Fire Department, passed out health
kits and flood buckets to Ernesto flood victims, which were donated
by UMCOR and delivered by a Methodist Church in West Palm. Also
delivered was food donated by Catholic Charities.

During this information day, CREW was able to complete four
applications for one resident in Muse, one in Labelle and two in
Moore Haven. Executive director Trish Adams, LCSW was able to
deliver donated clothes to the First United Methodist Church for
Moore Haven's thrift store. CREW helped to organized and run the
raffle for Glades Emergency Management to help promote awareness and
get residents to register and to challenge their knowledge of knowing
when to evacuate.
