Hurricane Dorian Relief Items Needed:
We have waited to announce this to ensure all collected items will in fact make it to the Bahamas. There has been an overwhelming response from the south Florida community wanting to give. To ensure your donation make it to the needed areas, we are working with Tropical Shipping in Association with Operation 300 and Congressman Brian Mast. Containers will be filled and placed on a barge going to Green Turtle Cay, Guana Cay, Hopetown, Man-o-War Cay and Elbow Cay.
Thanks to the generosity of so many and the abundance of supplies donated, the need has now shifted to building materials. We are now taking donations of the following items:
