Hurricane Supply Drive: Community Organizations Active In Disaster

Hernando County Hurricane Supply Drive

Community Organizations Active In Disaster 

Every year United Way of Hernando County oversees a county wide Hurricane Supply Drive starting in June and lasting through November in preparation to stock up on the supplies needed for local residents when disaster strikes. This annual initiative is in partnership with Emergency Management as well as The Hernando County COAD.

The Hernando COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster) was not formed in response to COVID-19, however, community partners now meet monthly virtually, and in-person when necessary. A strong community is vital when it comes to responding to a disaster before, during, and after. The Hernando COAD is committed to collaborating with over 60 different Health and Human Service representatives with a goal of fostering partnerships and reporting ongoing trends to better understand and serve our community.
