Two local Cuban solidarity organizations want to remind South Floridians that Cuba also suffered in the path of Hurricane Charley.

In a news conference Thursday, the Christian Women Association in Defense of Cuban Families and Jewish Solidarity asked the community to contribute food and supplies for areas of Cuba hit hard in last week’s hurricane.

‘‘We have not divorced ourselves from families and friends on the island,’’ said Jewish Solidarity chairman Eddie Levy. “We show solidarity to friends in need.’‘

The organizations are collecting food and medical items in a warehouse. The organization will use charter planes—largely inactive because of recent travel restrictions between the United States and Cuba—to transport aid.

Jewish Solidarity, which is licensed through the U.S. Department of Commerce to provide assistance to Cuba, is also asking the U.S. State Department for permission to contract cargo planes that will carry heavier materials such as wood panels and construction materials.

Donations can be brought to 100 Beacon Blvd. 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. For more information, call Jewish Solidarity at 305-642-1600
