To the Editor:

The members of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church and the Very Reverend Michelle Robertshaw, as well as the members of First Baptist Church of Boca Grande and Dr. Gary L. Beatty, Pastor write to publicly thank the Disaster Relief Fund and the Boca Grande Woman’s Club. We are overwhelmed and humbled by the generous financial support these two organizations made to our churches to help us recover from the damage caused by hurricane Ian. Thank you for the beacon of light and hope you have given us.

 We would also like to thank the leadership of both of these organizations for their hard work and support, especially Mary O’Bannon and Larry Hannah for their kind assistance.

Finally, we recognize and give thanks for the many donors who supported these funds. God bless you for your generosity.

With all that divides our country today, what a precious testament that Boca Grande is a community where people can work and worship and play together in caring and authentic ways.

Mother Michelle Robertshaw
