NAPLES, Fla. — Today, Senator Rick Scott visited St. Matthew’s House in Naples to thank volunteers for supporting Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian and to help package and distribute food to families in need. St. Matthew’s House is a nonprofit organization focused on supporting individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty.
Senator Rick Scott said, “For decades, St. Matthew’s House has faithfully served families in Southwest Florida. Now, even in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian when their own facilities have been destroyed, they are working to distribute meals and meet the needs of families who’ve lost everything to Hurricane Ian. I was proud to thank them today for their efforts and join them to distribute meals. They are an amazing example of Florida’s resiliency and how our state is coming together to rebuild and recover.”
