I have very poor internet and cell service where I am, but I wanted to try to send on another post-Hurricane Ian update for Ocean’s Reach.
We have accounted for all of our staff and everyone is safe. Two colleagues who have remained on Sanibel will be evacuated today.
They will be leaving an island that is basically unrecognizable.
There are no words. Our hearts continue to break, but we’re determined to do all we can to restore Sanibel to the beautiful sanctuary island it was and hopefully always will be.
In the meantime, I’ve learned that a special GoFundMe campaign has been started for the staff at Ocean’s Reach who live on the island. If you’re interested – and we send our heartfelt appreciation in advance – click here.
