The effects of Hurricane Ian will be felt for some time and Pasco County Firefighters want to do their part to help their own. No-Shave-November has started, and all proceeds go to victims of Hurricane Ian.

Being from Fort Myers I saw the destruction firsthand from Hurricane Ian. The viral video of the Hooters Roof floating away was once one of my common hangouts. People are rebuilding rather quickly down there and even now people are still trying to support victims of Hurricane Ian. Pasco Firefighters are doing No-Shave-November for Victims of Hurricane Ian.

This isn’t actually a new thing for Pasco Firefighters, in fact they usually do this charity for Firefighters who are cancer victims. From now until Nov. 19 Pasco’s finest will be growing out their mustaches and on the 19, they will all meet up at Double Branch Brewery in Wesley Chapel. That’s when they will compete in the Movemeber Shave-Off.” They would love to get the boys to grow out beards to accompany the mustaches but due to safety concerns they cannot.

One of the targets for this year’s Charity is Cody Janski. He was on standby at a local shelter when the Hurricane Ian hit his home where his wife and 3-year-old daughter were staying. They had to swim out of the house as it was destroyed and now, they are currently staying with family. [Source WFLA]

Tampa Bay Businesses Donating Proceeds To Hurricane Ian Reflief

Multiple Tampa Bay businesses are donating proceeds to Hurricane Ian relief efforts. Many residents of Tampa Bay woke up feeling extremely grateful that the worst of Hurricane Ian missed them. But unfortunately the same cannot be said to our friends south of us. Every day we are discovering more catastrophic damage and casualties to the southwest coast. With the help of Creative Loafing, we made a list of local businesses that are using a portion of their sales to help others.

We know if the storm had kept moving in its original track, our neighboring communities would do the same. If you are unable to volunteer or donate to any Hurricane Ian relief efforts, consider visiting any of these Tampa Bay businesses and making a purchase that will ultimately help others. Here are the businesses that we know of (so far) that are donating all of or a portion of their weekend proceeds.

If you are able, please consider donating to the Red Cross Hurricane Ian relief efforts. Click here for more information.
