Guatemala volcano donations

Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz and the mayors of municipalities located in Miami-Dade District 12 are joining forces to collect donations and provide relief for victims of the devastating volcano eruption in Guatemala.

 The District 12 leaders have established eight drop-off locations for donations of various goods needed to aid in the recovery.

 “We need to do our part to help our brothers and sisters in Guatemala recover from the deadly Fuego volcano, which has taken such a terrible toll on the country,” said Commissioner Diaz, who with the help of  Mayor Carlos Gimenez, his colleagues and Miami-Dade Fire Department Chief Downey and Metro-Dade Firefighters Local 1403 has already collected firefighter equipment and is working on legislation along with Commissioner Javier Souto to provide humanitarian relief to further the relief efforts.

 Requested items include masks, canned food, juices, antibiotics, disinfectants, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, infant and adult diapers, medicines for respiratory infections, laundry detergent, feminine hygiene products, brushes, toothpaste, first aid kits and painkillers.
