In the wake of Hurricane Michael’s impact on the Florida Panhandle, Owen-Ames-Kimball Company (O-A-K) is collecting hurricane relief supplies to aid in the region’s efforts to recover from the storm. Through Friday, Oct. 19, O-A-K is collecting donations at its offices in Fort Myers and Naples, and will deliver a semitruck full of relief supplies to the Panama City, Florida area.

Donations are being collected through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at O-A-K’s Fort Myers and Naples offices, located at 11941 Fairway Lakes Drive in Fort Myers and 5117 Castello Drive, Suite 2, in Naples.
