Cody Johnson, owner of Xtensive Automotive in Roanoke, grew up in Panama City. Hurricane Michael hit the Panhandle of Florida on October 11, 2018 as a strong category 4 storm, the strongest to ever hit the area. He has family and friends still living there that were affected by the storm and he wants to help his childhood community.
Johnson is teaming up with Chick-Fil-A on Valley View Boulevard in Roanoke to host a relief supply drive on Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 12:00-5:00 p.m. on the restaurant's parking lot. He will be collecting non-perishable food items, water, batteries, flashlights, and other emergency supplies
He hopes to leave for Florida with his truck and supply filled trailer next Wednesday or as soon as roads are open and people are allowed in the area. Any items that will not fit in his trailer will be donated to God's Pit Crew, an organization that is also helping people affected by Hurricanes Florence and Michael.
