Max Toussaint and 20 other District 3 residents recently received hurricane kits from County Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson. Now in its 8th year, the annual Seniors First Hurricane Kit Giveaway is also sponsored by Communities United, Inc. and its founding president, Hattie Willis. The kits contain some of the supplies needed to survive the first 72 hours after a hurricane and are distributed to elderly residents and families who may not otherwise be able to purchase them.
