National Debt Holdings, a receivables management firm in Fort Lauderdale, FL, extends its heartfelt condolences and sympathies to those impacted by the recent tragedy in Surfside, FL. We would like to offer our support and have recently contributed to SupportSurfside.org to provide aid to those impacted. We invite our industry peers and colleagues to consider joining us in doing the same.
The Surfside condo collapse took place June 24, 2021, when a 12-story residential building, Champlain Towers South, with 136 units partially collapsed. Surfside is a town north of Miami Beach, FL. Many people are confirmed dead, and many more people and families are affected by the devastating losses. As FEMA, the Florida Department of Emergency Management, and Red Cross are working to provide resources for housing and relocation assistance, Support Surfside is focused on providing immediate cash support to families and victims affected by the collapse. Volunteers working on behalf of the fund are meeting with families and victims onsite at the Family Assistance Center (FAC) to assess needs.
“The local communities are truly showing their support. The events have been heartbreaking to watch unfold, and the continued effects and devastation for victims, families, friends, and the community will resound for a long time. I know this has all been incredibly traumatic for people in the Surfside and nearby areas. We want to do our part to support those affected and are just thankful for the ability to do so. Our thoughts are with the families,” stated Jeremy Poehler, CEO at National Debt Holdings.
Support Surfside is a nonprofit fund organized in partnership with the Coral Gables Community Foundation and the Key Biscayne Community Foundation. The Coral Gables Community Foundation is a philanthropic organization focused on partnering with businesses and individuals for a variety of outreach initiatives to improve the city and quality of life for members of the city of Coral Gables, a city in Miami-Dade County near the city of Miami. The Foundation has been in existence for nearly 30 years and utilizes discretionary, donor-advised, and scholarship funds to provide grants to local nonprofits, scholarships to deserving students, and support “issues within the Foundation’s focus areas: education, arts & culture, historic preservation and social & health services.”
The Key Biscayne Community Foundation is a similar philanthropic partnership organization in Key Biscayne, FL, south of Miami Beach. In addition to partnering with local fundraising initiatives, some of the Foundation’s initiatives include Key Storytellers, Citizen Science Project, Life Enhancement Forum, and Winter Music Concert Series. The organization invests monetary contributions and distributes grants from initiative funds. This helps donors and fundraising groups to “achieve their charitable objectives without the burden of administrative and tax filings.”
