Hurricane Irma

After Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida in September 2017, IRT delivered 1,000 disaster health kits for evacuees living in shelters in Florida and we sent a 20' shipping container of canned foods for survivors who lost everything. In addition, we sent five semi tractor-trailers filled with more than 21,000 gallons of bleach to help clean and sanitize homes and prevent the spread of disease, illness and mold. When Hurricane Irma struck, families in Florida left their homes with nothing. The disaster health kits included soap, toothpaste, a toothbrush, shampoo, and other personal hygiene items that made all the difference for people living in shelters who could not return home.

IRT has more than 30 years of experience in assisting victims of disasters, both nationally and internationally. During its history, IRT has delivered more than $378 million in humanitarian aid to those in desperate need.
