We are so blessed to say that our entire team safely made it through Hurricane Irma. Our office also survived the storm, except for a giant tree that fell into our parking lot. Thankfully, no businesses in our complex were damaged, nor were there any vehicles in the parking lot when this happened.
Now it's time for our community and the entire state of Florida to recuperate and come together. We are working with a group of kind individuals who are heading to Immokalee and Marco Island to help those who have been severely affected by Irma. This group is driving to these areas of devastation, and we are so thankful for them. Southern Florida needs help immediately, so we are gathering everything we can from right now until Thursday.
Our team is focusing on gathering supplies for children, so we bought baby formula and 2,348 diapers! We have also had a few selfless members of our community donate their unused hurricane supplies, such as water, canned goods, toilet paper, and hygiene products. It's always so heartening to see our community come together to help those in needs.
We have two of our teammates celebrating birthdays this week! We'd like to give huge shout outs to Cody Burdick and Rob Daflos -- Happy birthday, Ragnar and Artist! 🎉🎂🎊🎁 Peep into #davronlife -- The stories behind the nicknames:
Our president, David Coreen, started calling Cody "Ragnar" last year. Cody got a haircut that resembled a character's (Ragnar) hair in the popular television series Vikings. Cody's hair has since grown out, however, the nickname remains.
David started referring to Rob as the "Artist" simply for his constant doodling and love of art. Rob is very talented and has even illustrated some of DAVRON's promotional documents.
