Volunteering

The town of Surfside activated a form online for Miami-Dade County residents who want to help the families of the victims. They are in need of support. You must specify the service you can provide. Here is the official volunteer form >

Family Assistance Center

There is no longer a need for items to be brought to the town’s improvised Family Assistance Center at the Surfside Recreational Center. Officials said they will advise if more physical donations are needed in the future, but they are requesting people no longer come there with donations.

Information

Officials are asking the survivors of the collapse to fill out this Wellness Check formand relatives of the people who are unaccounted for to fill out this Missing Person Report.
