Osceola Redi, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is a coalition of governmental agencies, faith-based and non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals dedicated to assisting victims of disasters, from hurricanes to the current COVID-19-related fallout, by pooling our community’s collective resources. “Redi” stands for “Recovery from Emergency Disaster Initiative,” and as such, the organization provides a comprehensive and integrated approach as Osceola County prepares for, responds to, and recovers from disasters that impact our community.
Side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have seen many of our county’s residents out of work and struggling to provide for their families. Osceola Redi is currently challenging our community to collectively raise $100,000 to support our local food pantries.
