HCP Associates’ offices in Port Tampa Bay’s Joseph Garcia International Center reopened today after power was restored late yesterday from Hurricane Irma’s wake.

After a week of grueling days managing preparation and response efforts, first responders and volunteers are hard at work helping people begin the recovery process.

The acts of kindness and compassion have been tremendous and it has been comforting to see family, friends and complete strangers offering a helping hand to those in need.

Thousands of volunteers are needed to assist efforts in response to this unprecedented storm.  If you would like to help, please consider donating time and effort to become a certified American Red Cross Disaster Services volunteer to help those in need.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those in need, along with the thousands of people affected by this devastating hurricane.
