Miami, Florida, Oct. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Republic Metals Corporation, in partnership with online retailers eBay and APMEX, announces the release of the “Florida Strong” silver round in support of disaster recovery efforts for the damage created by Hurricane Irma in the state of Florida. As with Republic’s previously released Hurricane Harvey “Houston Strong” Silver Round, profits raised by this “Florida Strong” silver round will be donated to the Red Cross to assist in providing food, shelter, and supplies to families affected by Hurricane Irma.
On Sunday, September 10th, the eye of Hurricane Irma, a category-4 hurricane, made landfall over the Florida Keys and continued North, devastating cities all across the Sunshine State. Over 6.5 million people, approximately one-third of the state’s residents, were forced to evacuate in preparation for one of the strongest recorded storms on record. Damage from Hurricane Irma is estimated to be greater than $50 billion and, with government aid and resources already spread thin from Hurricane Harvey, rescue workers and organizations need as much assistance as possible.
“Republic was fortunate to avoid the worst of the storm, but so many families across the state of Florida, and beyond, were not as lucky. The “Florida Strong” round allows us to give back to our great state and the affected communities,” explains Lindsey Rubin, Corporate Secretary of Republic Metals.
