Aiding the Florida Keys
Following the wake of Hurricane Irma, the Florida Panthers, South Florida Ford and the Dan Marino Foundation partnered up to deliver 80 palettes worth of supplies to the Florida Keys on Tuesday, September 19.
Donations and hurricane relief supplies were collected at the BB&T Center from Friday, Sept. 15 to Sunday, Sept. 17.
The convoy, which departed BB&T Center for the Keys at 10 am EST, came together with the help of 30 Ford dealers in South Florida, Sunrise Police, Florida Highway Patrol and the local community.
