You may recall a time when Texas State Florists’ Association worked in concert with the AIFD Foundation to support victims of Hurricane Harvey. Following, there were similar efforts where we assisted florists in Florida. Other catastrophic situations soon followed, such as the fires in California, where there was no specific fund in place to help. This led the AIFD Foundation Board of Trustees to establish the AIFD Foundation Catastrophic Fund to assist with property damage resulting from a natural disaster.
Hurricane Idalia landed ashore in Florida bringing destructive winds and flooding that leveled communities before proceeding up the Eastern Seaboard. Quickly spreading wildfires ignited into what Hawaii Governor Josh Green described as likely the “largest natural disaster in Hawaii's state history.” If you have experienced physical damage to property, due to a catastrophic event, we encourage you to complete the online application. If you are a Florida resident, there are two applications to complete.
