For those in the Tampa Bay area looking to give back to those hardest hit by the devastating effects of Hurricane Ian, there are multiple ways you can give back. It's why 10 Tampa Bay, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Cox radio stations have teamed up for Florida Together. This drive will collect dollars and supplies for people who lost their homes, possessions and jobs when Hurricane Ian stormed through the state. 

Donated funds will go to the Lightning Foundation, which will make grants to local relief groups like The American Red Cross, Metropolitan Ministries and Feeding Tampa Bay. All donations will stay in Florida and go directly to help those impacted by Hurricane Ian.
