On Sunday, September 24, 2017, disciples of Shree Swaminarayan Temple - Ocala, Florida invited CHief Executive Officer of Interfaith Emergency Services, Karla Grimsley, to the temple to present a $5,001 check for Hurricane Irma relief on behalf of Shree Swaminarayan Siddhant Sajivan Mandal Ocala. Hurricane Irma devastated a large portion of the Caribbean islands as well as the state of Florida, leaving millions of people without power, water, food, or their homes. The temple wanted to extend a helping hand to help the greater Florida recover. Ms. Grimsley applauded the temple's generosity and encouraged more interfaith acts of kindness.
