Local St. Augustine artist creating to help others

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A local St. Augustine artist is recuperating from the effects of Hurricane Matthew, but she's using her talent to help others. 

Kiara Sanchez's home took on water during Hurricane Matthew. Her story isn't uncommon for the area, but Sanchez didn't write First Coast News to tell us of the damage, instead her story was shared to us because of what she is doing to help her community. 

As a graduate from Flagler College, Kiara lives in, works in and loves St. Augustine. She has created a simple print of the St. Augustine skyline that you can buy for $20 on her website. All of the proceeds will go to the St. Francis House, which is a local charity that works with the homeless in St. Augustine. St. Francis was damaged in the storm and needs help rebuilding.

You can also buy t-shirts with the same sketch on them at the Surf Station, located at 1020 Anastasia Blvd, St. Augustine, 32080 on Friday from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
