PALM BAY ― On Thursday, September 2, 2021, the Palm Bay Municipal Foundation voted to approve a $1,000 donation to the National Haitian American Elected Officials Network’s (NHAEON) ongoing efforts to support those impacted by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on August 14, 2021. The $1,000 donation will be made as a disbursement from the Palm Bay Disaster Relief Committee.
From October 20 through November 20, all donations made to the Palm Bay Disaster Relief Committee will benefit NHAEON’s earthquake relief efforts.

A part of the Palm Bay Municipal Foundation, the City of Palm Bay’s Disaster Relief Committee was established on Oct. 3, 2017, following the disastrous effects of Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Harvey. The Disaster Relief Committee was born out of the simple idea that we, as individuals, can help to make a huge difference in the lives of those who have experienced a major disaster when we come together and combine our efforts.
Chaired by Councilman Donny Felix, the Disaster Relief Committee is intended to serve as a conduit so that citizens and City employees can help those affected by local, national, and international disasters. All funds raised and disbursed through the Disaster Relief Committee will be reported to the Palm Bay Municipal Foundation and kept on record.
The Palm Bay Municipal Foundation is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3). All proceeds go towards identified natural disasters or disasters needing assistance.
