Hurricane Dorian Relief Donations Delivered To Freeport, Grand Bahama
Donations have been collected for the residents of the Bahamas who were affected by Hurricane Dorian.
September 9, 2019 through October 17, 2019, we received various hurricane relief items donated by various individuals (Penny, Debbie, Linda, Laura (Reed), Cher, Sydney, Kira, Manny and many others); and private/public organizations: Bright Lights Crossing Borders, Inc. in Fort Lauderdale, FL; 242 Shipping & Logistics in Hollywood, FL; First Alliance International Church in Fort Lauderdale, FL; Florida Department of Transportation Employees in Broward, West Palm Beach and St. Lucie County, FL; The Worship Center in Margate, FL; Total Appliance Employees of Hallandale, FL; Hands on Broward in Fort Lauderdale, FL; Sisters With a Vision, Inc. in Port St. Lucie, FL; Vacation Village Employees in Weston, FL; A Place In Time in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
We would also like to thank the various volunteers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Freeport, Bahamas that worked with us tirelessly throughout this process by assisting us with the collection, pickup, sorting, packaging, preparing the 11 pallets of donated items for shipping and delivering them to the affected residents.
Our first delivery was made on October 18, 2019 to Freeport, Bahamas. We delivered the relief supplies to residents in the neighborhoods of Heritage on October 21, 2019 and Arden Forest on October 22, 2019, some of the hardest hit areas in Freeport. Supplies were delivered to approximately 200 residents. We will be distributing clothing on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Freeport.
Many of the residents expressed their gratitude and thankfulness to all that donated the relief items to them. Many of them wasn’t sure where their next meal or even a drink of water was coming from. With everyone’s support we were able to bring a light of hope to the residents we assisted.
Below are some of the pictures taken during the delivery to the residents.
Our job isn’t finished yet. Many residents are still in need of assistance in rebuilding and bringing some normalcy to their lives and is still seeking whatever help we can provide to them.
