A couple of Ruddy Turnstones skitter down the beach, working their way in between chunks of asphalt that have washed ashore from hurricane Michael. Funny how they blend in with everything that has washed ashore.

🎅🏼 UPDATE! Our lobby at @strategicdigitalservices is filling up, but we still have a huge need for toys! We’re expecting a wave of Amazon deliveries starting tomorrow, and the Tallahassee community has been incredible so far.
BUT - we still need your help!!! With over 3,800 kids homeless in Bay County and over 14,000 on the list, we need a ton of toys to deliver to Salvage Santa on Monday! And you still have plenty of time to help out.
You’ll find a link to the original post with all the details in my bio.
From the bottom of our hearts: THANK YOU! ❤️
This is Mia. She cooked up delicious vegetable curry and rice in her own kitchen and brought it to the tent city where hundreds of out of town resilience workers and locals displaced by #HurricaneMichael have been living for the last month. For many it was the first home cooked hot meal that they had had in weeks. When she had served the last of the food she had cooked, she helped residents of the camp organize donated canned goods. She says she’ll be back to help feed the people, wherever they may be. Mia is a resilience worker. #850Strong

"Money is normally tight, it’s even tighter now after Hurricane Michael. I’ve never seen anything like the damage from this storm before. When we came back, we had a lot of water damage to our apartment. Without the food we’ve been getting at the pantry, my kids would not have had enough to eat after this storm." -Lisa
As a category 4 storm, #HurricaneMichael took an incredible toll on the families affected. Amid the holidays, another silent consequence of disasters is amplified: hunger.
