Accepting the donation from the Garden Club of LBI are (left to right) Kyle Gronostajski, Environmental Director of  the Jetty Rock Foundation, Michele Farias, president of the Garden Club of LBI, Bonnie Korbeil, treasurer of the Garden Club and Julia Tomeldon, Executive Director of Jetty Rock.

The Garden Club of LBI made a $500 donation to the Jetty Rock Foundation, earmarked for southern Florida and the devastation of Hurricane Ian.  Originally started after Hurricane Sandy, the Jetty Rock’s “Unite and Rebuild” campaign  is now concentrating efforts toward Hurricane Ian.

“Watching the massive devastation that Hurricane Ian caused to the Florida coast brought so many memories of what we went through individually and as a community after Hurricane Sandy, “ said Garden Club president Michele Farias.

“ The Garden Club wanted to help in some way to show support to those going through what we had all experienced ten years earlier,    The Jetty team and their “Unite and Rebuild” campaign was a natural choice having been so helpful to  local first responders, individuals and businesses.”
