LENDING ESG EMPLOYEES A HELPING HAND WHILE THEY RECOVER FROM HURRICANE MICHAEL:
“Go Fund Me” For monetary support for Eastern Employees hardest hit by Hurricane Michael, please give.
(Revision 11-16-18) A message from our President, Joey D’Isernia:
On October 10th, 2018, Hurricane Michael made landfall in Bay County Florida. The most powerful storm to ever make landfall in the Florida Panhandle, Hurricane Michael currently stands as the third most powerful hurricane to make landfall in the United States, topped only by Hurricane Camille in 1969 and the Florida Keys Labor Day Hurricane of 1935. The devastation caused by this historic hurricane has left many people in the Bay County area without a home and has put them in severe financial distress. Among other initiatives specifically aimed at assisting its employees, Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. has started a Go Fund Me account in order to further help its employees and their families that were hit hardest by this storm. Please visit the Go Fund Me fund website if you would like to contribute to the employees of ESG. 100% of all funds raised will go directly to those employees hit hardest by the storm.
With Deep Admiration and Respect, Joey D’Isernia.
