Yankeetown, Florida is a wonderful, tight community that cares for its people. Since Hope Force landed in the area immediately after the onslaught of Hurricane Idalia, we’ve had the privilege of building strong relationships with the fire department and city manager. These are people fighting to help their people and community. You can see their tired eyes...but you can also see their great resolve to continue on.
In the video, you will hear from William Ary, the city manager, state what sums up what we often times refer to as "the beautiful side of disaster." “Hard times bring people together; that is the truth of it. We help each other the most when we are at our weakest point!” We’ve had the privilege of having some beautiful moments with the Yankeetown residents at "their weakest points." You’ll also hear homeowner Brandi Jewel’s compelling story in this video.
