DALLAS, TX — In the devastating wake of Hurricane Ian, Mercury One is bringing critical relief to southwest Florida. Founded by media personality, entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author Glenn Beck, the nonprofit organization quickly raised funds to deploy teams to the hardest-hit areas of the state.
In partnership with Minuteman Disaster Response, Operation BBQ Relief, and Operation Blessing, teams of disaster relief specialists are on the ground organizing essential relief to devastated area residents. These teams have been on the ground since before the disaster started and will continue to help hurting Florida families through search and rescue, providing warm meals to families, and helping clear roads.
“Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida and our fellow Americans are suffering. Over the last year, Mercury One has done incredible work domestically and internationally – but right now, at this very moment, our help is needed much closer to home. People are being displaced while their livelihoods are being washed away in just moments, and we are committed to doing what is necessary,” said Glenn Beck, Mercury One founder.
Hurricane Ian was one of the strongest storms to ever hit Florida. Through partners, Mercury One is meeting the immediate needs of those devastated by the storm—helping with food, communications and rescue missions.
Since the hurricane made landfall last Wednesday, the nonprofit group has raised more than $337,000 to help overwhelmed communities. Mercury One and its partners are committed to helping these communities for as long as their aid is needed.
