Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and his wife, Brittney, have teamed up to help those devastated in Florida following Hurricane Michael. The couple have helped to rebuild the 30A community by rescuing displaced animals, repairing structures and cutting down trees. Additionally, Brian and Brittney have partnered with Florida-based companies to bring brand new clothes, shoes, and toys to the families of Port St. Joe Elementary School in Port St. Joe, Florida.
In a video clip posted to Instagram, Brian and his wife are seen in the thick of recovery in Florida while helping their neighbors. Brian spends some time getting to know the locals and posing for photos in the midst of unloading several trucks of supplies.
“Thankful to help lead such an incredible team and relief efforts for our panhandle,” the singer shares on Instagram. “Every person, every dollar matters. Beyond blessed to give, grow, and rebuild together. Lord may you continue to shine your light on our state!”
The Florida native has also set up a GoFundMe page. Tribe Kelley Hurricane Relief was launched with the goal of raising $500,000. All money will be donated to communities in Florida affected by the devastation in the wake of Hurricane Michael. So far, nearly $47,000 has been raised.
“We are working directly with the county officials, communities, citizens, non-profit charity organizations to assure we are helping the people most in need in areas of devastation from Hurricane Michael,” they write. “We are working closely with Alaqua Refuge in helping provide homes for displaced citizens and animals.”
The money will be used to provide meals to the communities, officials and to workers that are without food, to house rebuilds for citizens without home insurance and those in dire need, as well as to rebuild local business and childcare centers.
