CONCORD, Va. (WFXR) — Gleaning for the World says they are now responding to Florida after devastating Hurricane Ian ripped through the sunshine state.

The organization is still helping victims of Hurricane Fiona in Puerto Rico but has now also taken up collecting supplies for Floridians.

“We made the decision to continue collecting for victims of Fiona, but to also begin asking for supplies for those affected by Hurricane Ian last week, too. We have nonprofit partners in Florida, and we knew we would be able to help quickly, if we had the supplies,” Gleaning’s president Jeane Smiley-Mason explained.

Gleaning for the World says they will be back in front of Sam’s Club in Lynchburg on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. to collect supplies for Florida.
