Hurricane Ian made landfall on September 28th, 2022 and caused widespread devastation across a broad section of Central Florida. Over 25 counties have been approved for individual assistance with FEMA and almost 700,000 households have applied for FEMA assistance.
We worked in collaboration with partners at the Florida State Emergency Operations Center and members of Florida VOAD to fill critical response need gaps. We worked with Disaster Relief by Amazon, Volunteer Florida, and Adventist Community Services to stand-up critically needed warehouse operations for multi-agency use in the hard-hit areas of Ft. Myers and Coral Springs. This allows donated products to be received, stored, and distributed from centrally managed locations.
Recovery efforts will continue to focus on clean-up, debris removal, and tarping in the short-term. Good360 partners are working across the most impacted communities, including those that have received the least amount of attention, such as Pine Island. Once this mucking and gutting clean-up work is completed, communities will be able to begin the process of making permanent repairs to existing homes and rebuilding new ones.
How Good360 is Helping:
Good360 is working in coordination with Volunteer Florida and Florida VOAD to ensure that we provide the right goods to the right people at the right time. Through these partnerships, we are able to ground-truth where the greatest level of need is, avoid duplication of effort, and ensure that we are contributing to a holistic approach to recovery.
To date, we have distributed more than $1 million worth of donated product to nonprofit partners supporting Hurricane Ian recovery efforts. We are committed to continuing our support for those impacted by this storm throughout the repair/rebuild and rehome process.
Cash donations are critical because they allow responding organizations like Good360 to provide the right support needed in a timely fashion.

We ensure that the right goods are delivered to the right people at the right time – throughout all stages of disaster recovery.
We’ll be there in the early days with personal care items, supplies for shelters, and cleaning/mucking out products and we’ll be there long after the media spotlight has dimmed months and years later with furniture, mattresses, home goods and other necessities to help impacted communities through the recovery journey.
Our mission is to provide critically needed goods throughout all stages of a disaster. This means we’ll continue to provide support long after media interest fades.
