Dallas, TX – October 9, 2018 – Associa, the industry’s largest community management company, has earmarked up to $100,000 to assist homeowners affected by Hurricane Michael through Associa’s national non-profit organization, Associa Cares.
Hurricane Michael, currently a Category 2 storm, is whirling around the Gulf of Mexico and is anticipated to strengthen before reaching landfall, potentially becoming a Category 3 storm. Hurricane Michael is forecasted to be the most destructive storm to hit the Florida Panhandle in decades and evacuation orders have been issued in at least 16 Florida counties along the Panhandle and Big Bend coasts.
“Associa Cares wants to provide assistance to as many residents as possible during this dangerous storm surge,” stated Andrew Fortin, Associa Cares president. “Widespread power outages, damaging winds, and potential flooding have been forecasted, and we wanted to have the funds ready and available to those most affected. The donated funds will help with initial relief efforts and be available for direct grants to those who have lost their homes or have been displaced due to storm damage. Associa has many managed communities in Florida; we will continue to keep the residents in our thoughts during this difficult time.”
Associa Cares funds are distributed to families of Associa-managed and non-Associa managed communities. To donate to Associa Cares or apply for assistance, please visit our website at http://www.associacares.com/.
