Commissioner Diaz encourages donations for Dorian victims

MIAMI – The Miami-Dade County Commission on Sept. 4 approved legislation sponsored by Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz to allow County employees to contribute the monetary value of their accrued holiday and annual leave time to the County’s Emergency Disaster Relief Fund for the purpose of donating to Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas and other affected areas.

“Our friends in the Bahamas need a lot of help to recover from the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian, and we are asking our generous County employees to step up the plate once again to help our neighbors in their time of need,” Commissioner Diaz said.

Commissioner Diaz’s district office is supporting the County’s Hurricane Dorian relief drive by accepting donations of supplies from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 8345 NW 12th Street, Miami, FL 33126.
