The donations will be going to the Mexico Beach community, which was devastated by the category 4 hurricane.

John at Ocala Drive-In shared the following on Facebook this past week, “Being a victim of Hurricane Katrina myself, I can remember the greatest thing next to that first meal was the smell of a clean shirt or blanket to sleep on.”

If you are able to volunteer or contribute, call John at 321-368-9529.
