Casey DeSantis Plays Leading Role in Hurricane Relief Efforts

Florida’s First Lady, Casey DeSantis, has consistently taken a leadership role in the state by promoting initiatives that will help Floridians while promoting conservative values.

In early August, Casey DeSantis unveiled the ‘Hope Florida’ initiative that helps connect Floridian families with nonprofits across the state to serve their needs.

She also launched the ‘Continue the Mission’ initiative in June of 2022, which focused on recruiting veterans, military spouses, and former law enforcement officers to serve as child protective investigators and case managers.

Now, she is taking a leading role in the state’s hurricane relief efforts.

She spoke on behalf of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida government, saying they are ‘committed to helping’ Floridians in need after the hurricane.

“We know that for many Floridians, this will be a long road to recovery, and we are committed to helping.” She said after announcing that $1 million in relief has already been distributed.

Florida’s First Lady said 100,000 tarps have already been distributed to help people whose homes have been damaged.

“They still have roofs that need to be repaired. So we have 100,000 tarps being deployed to that area, so we can be able to help them in the immediacy,” said DeSantis.

“That’s why we have those 300 tractor trailers full of supplies that are being deployed as we speak. We have tens of thousands of first responders on the ground, ensuring that people are safe and secure. They’re going house to house. They’re going to go back in again today, as they’ve been actually doing all night to see what the needs are. And then again, this fund will help supplement the state’s efforts.”

YSheannounced that more than $10 million has already been donated to the Disaster Relief Fund, thanking Floridians and people across the country who have contributed to the state’s relief efforts.

Casey has been traveling around the state with DeSantis surveying the damage caused by Hurricane Ian. On Thursday, she was with the Governor in Charlotte and Lee County.
