The Estero Council of Community Leaders (ECCL) has worked hard to assist families suffering hardship and heartbreak following Hurricane Ian. 

ECCL leaders Jim Shields and John Quin organized a 2-day gathering on November 5 and 6 at Riverwoods Plantation on West Broadway. The purpose was to provide a modicum of handholding and information. Hot meals, social interaction, and helpful information were also provided directly to those in the West Broadway area affected by the horrible event of hurricane Ian.

A list of organizations providing Hurricane Ian assistance is available at the link below.
