The Florida Association of Insurance Agents (FAIA) is on the ground helping agents affected by Hurricane Irma. FAIA's RV CAT vehicle—which highlights the Trusted Choice® brand—is assisting Big "I" member agencies in Jacksonville and St. Augustine. FAIA also has a Trusted Choice van in southwest Florida to assist victims.
As families and businesses continue recovery efforts from the flooding and damage caused by Hurricane Irma, you can help, too, by donating to the Trusted Choice Disaster Relief Fund.
Established by the IIAA Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity, the fund distributes cash grants to victims and surviving family members of natural disasters. It helps provide for immediate or ongoing financial needs when other resources are not available, and fills the gap until other funding sources become accessible. The fund also provides insurance agents with supplies and resources to aid victims and surviving family members in their communities.
Individuals and businesses can donate to the fund online. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. For those seeking aid, grant applications, criteria and guidelines are also available.
