Hurricane Irma Relief Block Party 2017-The Orlando Times
Drop D No Limits Foundation & Community Partners Present Hurricane Irma Relief Block Party 2017! When We're Winning! Things Return To Normal!
BY JIMMIE WILLIAMS
ORLANDO - Hurricane Irma has come and gone but we're still picking up the pieces. We are better at being prepared for disasters. My Lord has a sense of humor. He will come in and destroy everything you've touched to let you know you are not in control. What a hurricane will do is make you humble yourself. Some of us think that we don't need anyone until after the hurricane has left. No lights, no water and no gas. As I told you earlier, He has a sense of humor. Now you need! You need your neighbors that you didn't speak to before now. So people class is in. Don't take hurricanes lightly. Yes they are strong and powerful, but we are stronger. Look, City of Orlando Commissioner Samuel B. Ings of District 6 showed up, got on the mic and gave a shout out to Drop D. He was just having fun with the residents while taking pictures talking with everyone. It was just awesome. Commissioner Ings spent time in Al’s Food Store taking pictures with the store manager Mr. Sandy Kaushiu and Assistant Manager Mr. Amyn Jetha. The Holden Heights community came out for the block party as well as other communities. Everyone had an awesome time enjoying the music, live bands, great food and good company. Mr. Al was an awesome host greeting everyone with a warm welcome to the event. The hurricane relief community block party was a success and I want to thank Commissioner Samuel B. Ings of District 6, City of Orlando, Orlando Police Department, Orlando Fire Department, Chef Eddie's, Cox Media Star 94.5, Jo Jo O'Neil, WOKB Cora Miles Jefferson, Al's Food Store, William E., Walmart, Palmer Feed Store, Simply, Staywell, Wellcare, Central Communication, The Orlando Times newspaper, Jrogun Motivation and Fitness Training LLC, Carter Street Association, A&M Pawn Shop, Kingdom Gospel Radio, Ms. Yvonne Ovachi Bennett, Eddie's Italian ice, Sy’s Supermarket, volunteers and all of the band members.
