Destinations Florida Lends a Hand to Neighbors Affected by Hurricane Michael

Destinations Florida Annual Meeting attendees gather at Grand Marlin Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Pensacola Beach to assemble 1,500 hygiene kits for the Bay and Gulf county communities.

At last  year’s Destinations Florida Annual Meeting, the host city’s DMO, Visit Pensacola, along with meeting attendees participated with Clean the World to create 1,500 hygiene kits for Gulf and Bay counties, two areas severely impacted by Hurricane Michael.

“We knew we had to do something to help our friends to the east, President of Visit Pensacola Steve Hayes said. “Destinations around the state of Florida are a community, and in this industry, you help your community.”

Clean the World leads a global hygiene revolution to distribute recycled soap and hygiene products from more than 5,000+ hotel and resort partners. The organization is working to build and ship more than 100,000 kits into the panhandle in relief support of Hurricane Michael.
