Hurricane Ian came ashore on Florida’s southwest coast the morning of Wednesday, September 28, 2022 devastating whole communities and the people who live and work there. Many of those most closely affected by this terrible event make their living in the marine trades on the waters of southwest Florida.
Old Salt Fishing Foundation, Marine Industries Association and Annapolis Boat Shows “Hands Across the Transom Hurricane Relief Fund” have come together to create the Hurricane Ian Marine Industry Relief Fund. We are collecting funds to help individuals working in the marine trades on Southwest Florida Waters, recover from the ravages of Hurricane Ian.
100% of funds collected will go directly to individuals and families in need who make their living on the water, such as (but not limited to):
- Marine Business Owners and Employees
- Fishermen – Captains, Guides, Mates, and Crew
- Marine Law Enforcement & Regulatory Officers
Marine industry people are is desperate need. Please open your heart and your wallet. Use the adjacent donation form help us put things right in Southwest Florida. Thank you.
Old Salt Fishing Foundation has deep roots of giving back, we have been a community partner for over 50 years. We are an all volunteer run organization which keeps costs low so 100% of the money donated can reach those in need.
