Local Foundation Helps Raise $5 Million for Hurricane Relief for Florida

The Florida National Guard Foundation is proud to have worked with the Bush Presidential Library Foundation to help raise millions for Hurricane Relief for Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

Broadcasted as the “Deep from the Heart, the One America Appeal” on October 2st, the event was hosted by the 5 former Presidents at Texas A&M’s Reed Arena and included the Band Alabama, Lyle Lovett and various other artists. The event has raised over $35 million to date with $5 million coming to Florida to the Florida Disaster Fund.

“With damage estimates from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria topping $300 billion and requiring months and years of rebuilding ahead, we hope this strong start to the One America Appeal is just that – a start,” said David Jones, CEO of the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation. This unforgettable night would not have been such a success without your support. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for joining us in this historic effort.”

Below is a Thank You letter from the Bush Presidential Library Foundation for the help provided by the Florida National Guard Foundation.
