Sunshine State shout out to Kiana "Scooter" Lollis of Pinellas Park. We are so proud of this Sunshine Stater for stepping up and helping her fellow Floridians. After Hurricane Irma, Kiana found out that some of her family's friends were making runs down to the Florida Keys to bring needed supplies to those impacted.
"I'm on a mission. I have to help them! We were blessed to only loose power for a few days and they lost everything," Kiana said to her mom.
Kiana knew she needed to help and had the idea of making her own "Florida Strong" hygiene bags.
Since then she has raised almost over $500 and has made hundreds of "Florida Strong" hygiene bags for men and women - each one with a personalized note.
Kiana even helped some linemen from Illinois by delivering 80 lbs of ice to them.
We are inspired by you Kiana! Keep up the great work! More Sunshine State Stories to come. If you have an idea or want us to consider featuring you or someone you know, please email your Sunshine State Story to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
