Florida Power & Light donates $50,000 to support Florida SBDC disaster recovery efforts

FPL donates $50,000 to support Florida SBDC disaster recovery efforts

 

 

The Florida SBDC Network, the state’s principal provider of small business assistance, is committed to ensuring that small business owners impacted by Hurricane Ian receive the resources and assistance they need to rebuild and recover. The network is pleased to announce that Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has provided the Florida SBDC with $50,000 to support the network’s continued efforts to help small businesses impacted by the storm.

“Since Ian first impacted our state, our network has been hard at work helping small businesses access the resources they need to rebuild and reopen,” said Greg Britton, state director of the Florida SBDC Network. “We are so appreciative of FPL’s support and their commitment to small businesses. It is through their generous support that we are able to continue to do the important work we do to help businesses recover.”

Hurricane Ian made landfall in Southwest Florida as one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the United States. The powerful storm has caused widespread damage to small business owners across the state.

The Florida SBDC Network serves as part of the state’s Emergency Support Function (ESF-18) for Business and Industry. In this role, the network plays an integral role following a disaster in helping coordinate recovery efforts and helping small business owners apply for disaster assistance.

In partnership with the SBA, state, and local partners, the network has opened and staffed Business Recovery Centers (BRCs) in hard-hit communities where impacted business owners can come for in-person assistance in understanding and applying for state and federal disaster loans. The Florida SBDC has also deployed its fleet of mobile assistance centers (MACs) - a fleet of recovery vehicles - into communities to establish BRCs where physical facilities are not easily available. MACs have been on the ground in the impacted area since immediately after the storm. These mobile units have brought support to eleven counties, helping to facilitate over 2,100 hours of service provided to impacted business owners through consulting at mobile and fixed site business recovery centers.

Florida Power & Light Company’s donation enables the network to extend its MAC and staff deployment in the field to support long-term recovery efforts, ensuring small business owners have access to critical resources

“I believe Florida’s SBDC is the best small business support network in the country,” said Pamela Rauch, vice president of external affairs and economic development for FPL. “They have been on the ground for more than a month in those areas hardest hit by Hurricane Ian and we’re happy to help them extend that support. Small businesses are the foundation of Florida’s economy and getting them back on their feet is critical to rebuilding not just the regions affected by the storm but the entire state.”

FPL’s Office of Economic Development works to attract new and expanding companies and capital investment to the state by providing Infrastructure assessments, energy rate quotes, information on energy efficiency programs and more. FPL also provides a small business tool to help companies identify and map potential customers and suppliers, and map demographics, labor force and consumer expenditure data. 

For more information on how the network is helping small businesses recover from Hurricane Ian, please visit www.FloridaSBDC.org/disaster.

 

About the Florida SBDC Network:

For more than 45 years, the Florida SBDC Network, the state’s principal provider of business assistance [Fl. Stat. 288.001], has nourished a statewide partnership between higher education and economic development to provide existing and emerging small and medium-sized business owners with management and knowledge resources that enable overall growth, increased profitability, and economic prosperity for Florida’s economy. In 2021, the Florida SBDC Network delivered more than 157,000 hours of consulting to more than 18,000 small business clients – resulting in business owners securing over half a billion in capital, securing more than $380 million in government contracts, impacting 28,930 jobs, increasing sales by over $4 billion, and creating 778 new businesses.

With over 40 offices statewide, the Florida SBDC is funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration, Department of Defense, State of Florida and other private and public partners. The Florida SBDC Network, headquartered at the University of West Florida, is nationally accredited by the Association of SBDCs and is a recipient of the President’s E Award for Export Service. Florida SBDC services are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Language assistance services are available for individuals with limited English proficiency. For more information, please visit www.FloridaSBDC.org.

Comcast Opens Xfinity Store in Port St. Lucie

Comcast Opens Xfinity store in Port St. Lucie

 

Comcast today announced the opening of a new Xfinity Store in Port St. Lucie. The store is designed entirely around the needs of Comcast customers, allowing them to experience the latest Xfinity services firsthand, plus handle account-related tasks like signing up for new services or exchanging equipment.
 
The new Xfinity Store has an open, inviting environment and features multiple counters staffed by Xfinity sales consultants, comfortable seating areas and displays that illustrate all the features of Xfinity’s full range of products and services, including Xfinity Internet, Xfinity X1, Xfinity Mobile, Xfinity Voice, and Xfinity Home products. The latest mobile devices from Apple, Google, LG, Motorola and Samsung, as well as wireless accessories are available for purchase at the store.
 
Plus, customers can pay bills, get answers to account-related questions and return old equipment or pick up new equipment. They can even schedule appointments online ahead of time for certain service requests by using the online Xfinity Store Locator to find the nearest store and selecting the Book Appointment” button.
 
“This new store will give our St. Lucie County customers the opportunity to try our products and services and see how they fit in to their lives. For example, parents can see first-hand how they can use our xFi platform to make sure their children are not getting too much screen time. And someone watching their budget can see how Xfinity Mobile can save them money on monthly cell phone bills,” said Javier Garcia, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Comcast’s Florida Region. “We’re also able to take great care of our customers in a conveniently located and comfortable environment with top-notch service for whatever they need.”
 
As a part of Comcast’s commitment to bridging the digital divide, customers can also come to the store for assistance with the Affordable Connectivity Program and Internet Essentials.
 
The federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides qualified individuals and households with a monthly credit of up to $30 to pay for internet and/or cellular phone service. Comcast is an ACP program participant and qualified customers can use the ACP credit towards any tier of Xfinity Internet service, including Internet Essentials.
 
Internet Essentials is Comcast’s signature digital equity initiative and the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. It provides low-cost, in-home internet service for qualified households, the option to purchase an Internet-ready computer for less than $150 before taxes, plus multiple ways to access online digital literacy and skills training.
 
The Internet Essentials tier offers 50 Mbps internet service for $9.95 a month for qualified households. The Internet Essentials Plus tier offers 100 Mbps internet service, which is twice as fast, and costs $29.95 a month. The ACP’s $30 a month credit for internet and/or cellular phone service completely covers the monthly bill for Internet Essentials or Internet Essentials Plus.
 
The new Xfinity Store is located at 277 SW Port St Lucie Boulevard in Port St. Lucie in the shopping center with Winn-Dixie and is open seven days a week. Store hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm and Sunday from 12 noon to 6:00 pm.
 
This store is replacing the Comcast customer service center that was located in the same shopping center at 261 SW Port St Lucie Boulevard and closed permanently October 21.
 
Comcast now has 45 Xfinity Stores throughout Florida. For more information about Xfinity products, services, and retail stores, call 1-800-XFINITY or visit www.xfinitystores.com

POINSETTIA POWER! fundraiser for Meals on Wheels set for Dec. 7

Poinsettia Power! fundraiser for Meals on Wheels

The date is set for the Council on Aging of Martin County’s annual fundraiser for Meals on Wheels. Poinsettia Power! Holiday Shopping Bazaar, Luncheon and Fashion Show will be held at the Kane Center on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Poinsettia Power is donning a tropical holiday theme this year, featuring pink poinsettias and bright colors. Guests are encouraged to attend in pink and green or tropical prints. Doors open for shopping at 10 a.m. The Holiday Bazaar is a great place to discover unique items that will wow even the hardest people to shop for on your list. Find anything from fine jewelry and fashion to home décor and gourmet foods. Plus, shopping helps benefit Meals on Wheels!

In addition to visiting the vendors, guests will have opportunities to participate in a prize drawing and a silent auction. This year’s prizes include staycation packages, a day with the interior designer Francesca Morgan, a box full of premium liquors, and a dine-around package, to name a few.

The luncheon will begin at noon led by guest emcee Ashley Glass, correspondent with Scripps National News. Following the luncheon will be the holiday fashion show produced by Rose Meyerowich. The Holiday Hat Parade and Contest will return as well. Guests are encouraged to attend the event in their most fabulous headpieces and then strut the runway for a chance to win a prize…and bragging rights.

Poinsettia Power was founded 17 years ago to ensure low-income, homebound seniors on the government waiting list for Meals on Wheels did not have to wait hungry. Last year, thanks to the generosity of the sponsors, underwriters and guests, Poinsettia Power raised a groundbreaking $100,000 for Meals on Wheels and supportive case management services. This year, the Council on Aging hopes to match the monumental success, which will help fight senior hunger and isolation in Martin County. The need continues to be great. Each weekday, at least 500 meals are prepared fresh by the Kane Center’s culinary team and hand-delivered to homes throughout Martin County.

“There is an unending need for the Meals on Wheels safety net,” said Karen Ripper, President and CEO of the Council on Aging. “During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to identify many seniors who had never needed or wanted to ask for help. Though the demand has leveled off, we are still delivering well over 100 more meals each day compared to pre-COVID times.”

Tickets are $100 per guest. Table sponsorships are also available for groups of eight or 10. Purchase online at www.kanecenter.org/foundation/poinsettia-power or call (772) 223-7827. The Kane Center is located at 900 SE Salerno Road in Stuart.

Poinsettia Power is sponsored by Publix Super Markets Charities, the Law Offices of John Mangan, P.A., Francesca Morgan Interiors, Martin Funeral Home & Crematory, N. Schoonover & Associates, Rehmann Financial Services, and Seacoast Bank.
