Good Greek Contributes To Micheal Relief Efforts

Good Greek Moving & Storage Joins Hurricane Michael Relief Effort

Trucks from Good Greek Moving & Storage are bringing supplies to North Florida, helping victims of Hurricane Michael recover from the devastation the monster storm left in its wake.

The hurricane claimed the lives of at least 29 people across the United States, including 19 in Florida. Almost 160,000 people still didn’t have power a week after the storm hit, and many were just now returning to assess the damage to their homes.

Many will likely find sad news. In one county alone – Bay County – the storm destroyed or damaged more than 2,500 structures, according to CNN.

“People have suffered because of this storm,” said Spero Georgedakis, owner of Good Greek Moving & Storage. “Giving back is something that is very important to us, especially to fellow Floridians. And we know what they’ve been through, since we’ve been through it before in South Florida, too.”

Indeed, Hurricane Michael is now considered one of the most powerful storms to strike Florida since Hurricane Andrew pummeled South Florida in 1992.

Hurricane Supplies Heading North

Good Greek trucks are part of a convoy that traveled to North Florida carrying needed supplies to hurricane victims. The Florida Highway Patrol escorted the convoy of trucks to ensure it arrived in North Florida as quickly as possible.

FHP Trooper Joe Sanchez told 7 News in Miami that the idea was to get the supplies there as fast as possible because “they’re waiting for water, they’re waiting for supplies. He said of the effort to collect and deliver the needed supplies, “This is what America is all about.”

Donations have poured in from people all around South Florida this week. They include flashlights, batteries, diapers, and water. Other collected donations included new blankets, cots, and sleeping bags. 7 News also reported that a little girl donated her own money to buy food for pets left stranded or without food in the wake of the hurricane.

It’s an effort that was led by Aventura Police, Feeding South Florida in Pembroke Park, iHeart Radio, and many other organizations.

Wanted to Be Included

Drivers in the supply convoy left at about 6 a.m. on Oct. 17, heading toward Mexico Beach and Panama City, two areas hit hardest by Hurricane Michael.

Good Greek driver Zachary Schaubhut was part of the convoy. He told 7 News the devastation in North Florida hit close to him because of his past experience.  “I myself know a little too well the struggle of rebuilding. After Katrina, I was a senior in high school, so this kind of touched my heart, and I definitely wanted to be included in this.”

Good Greek Moving & Storage is proud to be part of this relief effort and encourages everyone to donate what they can to those devastated by this monster storm.

One of those ways is by donating blood, which is likely to be needed in the wake of the storm. The American Red Cross website has information on the latest blood drives around the country.

The American Red Cross also will take monetary donations for disaster relief. Those wishing to donate money can also give to the state-run Florida Disaster Fund. There is also a GoFundMe account that has been created to directly help Hurricane Michael victims.

For those wishing to volunteer to directly help with relief efforts, VolunteerFlorida has set up a page for volunteer applicants who want to work as part of Hurricane Michael relief efforts.
