Hurricane Ian Recovery – How You Can Help

Fort Myers Beach Needs Your Help!


Fort Myers Beach Chamber – Hurricane Relief Fund

The Fort Myers Beach Chamber is committed to helping our island rebuild and we need your help. All donations will go to aid our island businesses, with the focus primarily on helping those left unemployed in the wake of the disaster. Funds will also help sustain our Chamber during this trying time. Please donate today!

In Memory of William Squeo, on behalf of John and Sheila Quelette, and Linda Squeo and family.

John Quelette from Cape Coral made a donation to the FMB Chamber for $80, in memory of and on behalf of William Squeo of Columbus, Ohio, who recently passed away. Fort Myers Beach was Squeo and his family’s favorite place to vacation. You can read Mr. Squeo’s obituary here.
