When Hurrican Ian hit Florida, the Committee to Support and Defend literally had boots on the ground to provide assistance to active-duty military families.
Nicola, an Army guard member, suffered warzone-like damage to her home. Her roof had damage, food was lost, clothes ruined, furniture destroyed, appliances damaged, and her car needed repairs. All of this while losing work due to the storm.
Adrian is a non-commissioned officer in the Army guard who is working hard to take care of his family. Already hit hard by inflation, his route to work was blocked due to hurricane flooding. He lost more than a week of pay, causing additional financial hardship.
Sabrina is a young soldier in the Guard. She and her fiancé’s places of employment were both flooded and closed for a time, leaving them without income. She struggled with roof repairs, a water system that was destroyed, and mold growing in their home.
Thanks to your membership donations, the Committee to Support and Defend was able to help these and other servicemembers.
