Founders Ron Hagerman and Matthew Melican, along with active volunteers and MIYC Members Erin Milchman and Joey Waves, will share their stories of experiencing the storm on the Island , helping others through the ordeal, and doing the ongoing work of getting essential supplies like food, water, diapers, cleaning supplies, to the hardest hit victims, especially in Goodland, Everglades City and Chokoloskee. Formed just days before Hurricane Irma’s landfall on Marco Island, the Marco Patriots have been a key source of help, providing essential information, support and provisions through its volunteer network. Its Facebook page is followed

by nearly 10,000 people including many MIYC Members, sharing posts ranging from getting rid of mold to info on missing cats, dogs and boats. It's all about people helping people.
