Friends and Family,
There are no words to describe the heartbreak we’re all feeling after witnessing the extent of Hurricane Ian’s destruction. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the communities impacted, especially those along the West Coast of Florida, where wind speeds of up to 155 mph brought devastating storm surge and structural damage.
Days ahead of landfall, our organization deployed almost 2000 personnel and strategic assets around the state to ensure we were ready to help every community affected by the storm. We’re now a week into Hurricane Ian’s second landfall, and our teams in Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa, Ocala and beyond have been working day and night to assess commercial property damages and rebuild the communities from the State of Florida to the Eastern Coast of the Carolinas and Georgia.
Governor DeSantis was right when he said it will take several years to fully rebuild the communities affected by this catastrophe, but know that the entire Cotton Team is here for you every step of the way. Cotton GDS, Cotton Logistics, Cotton Culinary, Full Circle Restoration, Stellar Commercial Roofing, Advance Catastrophe Technologies, and Target Solutions all have boots on the ground and are working together to rebuild communities as quickly as possible. Cotton Foundation is also committed to helping hurricane victims and is matching donations to the American Red Cross (up to $25,000). Additionally, our Cotton CommUNITY team is actively searching for ways to help individuals and families recovering from the storm.
If there’s anything the Cotton Companies can do for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are available 24/7 and will respond to your property as soon as possible: 877-511-2962 or CottonRecovery.com.
Praying for your swift and safe recovery,
- Pete Bell
