Hurricane Irma Relief Supplies
As a Florida based business, International Granite and Stone understands the struggle most of our residents have been facing this past week after Hurricane Irma devastated our state. The idea came to Chris Stewart, Owner of International Granite and Stone, whilst he was cleaning up his house with his wife and kids after the storm, and hearing from many friends how they were stranded in the Keys with no supplies left. Chris and his wife Andrea have taken up the cause and will be personally delivering supplies to the Keys!
“We were grateful to have enough supplies to last us through the storm. We had our generator running for four days, I can’t even begin to fathom what we would’ve done without it. There are so many people in need in the Keys, and we have alot of extra supplies we didn’t use during the storm, it only seems fitting that we gather up what we can, to give to those whose homes were devastated down there.” Stewart said.
We’re calling on you for help!
Although the Tampa Bay area wasn’t hit as hard as anticipated, many are still without power, food or water. Many residents are dealing with flood damage, downed trees, and debris, or have lost their homes completely.
