Scott Beranek, the founder of Vista Properties, said his goal is to offset the cost of the transportation of donated equipment by salvaging the scrap from the 40-plus homes he has received permission to demolish. Whatever money is leftover he hopes to give directly to the former residents who were flooded out of their homes on Sept. 8.
All of the former residents displaced by Tropical Storm Lee have found temporary shelter but most are still looking for permanent housing, according to non-profit officials.
The county declared 66 unsafe for habitation, leaving more than 150 people homeless.
