To support Southwest Florida residents negatively impacted by the recent tornadoes, Norman Love Confections’ McGregor Boulevard Salon is donating 15% of every purchase through the end of January to the SWFL Relief Fund through United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties.
“Recent tornadoes devastated the homes and belongings of many of south Fort Myers neighbors very near to our McGregor Boulevard Salon,” said Norman Love, founder and CEO of Norman Love Confections. “So many families lost everything, and our team is moved to help them. As a local company that cares about our community, this is our way of offering support and showing our neighbors some love during this difficult time.”
An estimated 200 families were forced out of their homes after tornadoes touched down in Southwest Florida on Sunday morning. Many others suffered severe damage and loss. Families needing immediate assistance can call the United Way helpline, 2-1-1.
