Storm Smart’s “We Care” Program Donates Shutters To Arc For Month Of August
Ft. Myers, Fl- July 16, 2010
Storm Smart Industries, the largest and most innovative hurricane protection company in Southwest will be supplying and installing hurricane protection for the Animal Refuge Center, better known as ARC. Storm Smart’s “We Care” program began in 2008 to help families and local businesses in need during hurricane season. Yes, even animals too!
The Animal Refuge Center of Fort Myers is a not for profit animal welfare society dedicated to stopping the escalating cost to impound, care for, kill and dispose of dogs and cats dying for no reason other than having been born. ARC is a non-euthanasia organization. Not only does ARC protect and save many hundreds of animals, but ARC also has an indoor training program to help train and rehabilitate animals so, they are more attractive to a potential adopter.
“We are pleased to be able to help ARC and protect the facility that cares for so many animals that would otherwise not have a chance and include them in our “We Care” program, said Brian Rist, Storm Smart Industries, president.
Storm Smart Industries will be installing the shutters on the facility in the next few weeks to be sure that the facility is protected during hurricane season. Storm Smart will be visiting the facility on July 20th, 2010 to measure and meet the team at ARC.
“As the largest no-kill shelter in the state, it is essential that our treatment center remain intact during a storm. This will allow us to not only care for our animals, but it would place us in a position to help the community at large,” said Betty Hughes, Board Treasurer, ARC,” Arc also serves as a triage center and it would be very sad to loose that ability.”

Storm Smart’s “We Care” Program Combines Efforts with Builders Care
Ft. Myers, Fl- March 2, 2010
Storm Smart Industries, the largest and most innovative hurricane protection company in Southwest Florida combines efforts with Builder’s Care to help out a family in need in the surrounding area. Storm Smart will be supplying and installing accordion shutters to the family’s home to provide theft and storm protection. Storm Smart’s “We Care” program began in 2008 to help families in need during hurricane season.
Ms. Roxanne Roberts, the recipient of the donations, adopted four special needs children- two sibling groups- from the State of Florida. At the time of the first adoption, the children were three and four. On the second occasion, she adopted two sisters who where twelve and sixteen years old. Prior to becoming an adoptive parent, Ms. Roberts began providing full-time care for a 14 year old boy who had cerebral palsy and required total care. He had been institutionalized where she worked and was very attached to her. He still lives with her, and he is now 23 years old. After all of these years caring for others, Ms. Roberts is excited about the upcoming birth of her new child.
Roxanne and family have found a home to live, but it is not “liveable” due to fire damage. Roxanne turned to the Builders Care network for help and Storm Smart’s “We Care” program was notified of her situation. “We are pleased to be able to help Roxanne and her family as a recipient of our “We Care” program, said Brian Rist, Storm Smart Industries, president
