Ponte Vedra Recorder to collect gift cards for donation to hurricane victims


As storm recovery efforts continue across the First Coast, the Ponte Vedra Recorder is joining forces with the Salvation Army of St. Augustine to assist local residents in need.

To assist families with their post-hurricane repairs, the Recorder is collecting gift cards for supermarkets, hardware/home improvement stores and other locations from which those affected by Hurricane Matthew can access the supplies they need during this period of transition.

Gift cards in any amount may be dropped off at the Recorder office located in the Overlook V building at 1102 A1A N., Suite 108. Donors may also include a card or note of encouragement to be given to families if they so choose. All donated gift cards will be delivered to the Salvation Army in St. Augustine for distribution to local families in need.Gift cards will be collected through Oct. 31
