Hurricane Dorian has deeply affected our eastern neighbors in the Bahamas. DowntownWPB’s community is making efforts during this time to send relief supplies.
Funds Needed For Bahamas Relief Cruise:
Last week the Bahamas Relief Cruise provided the first major supply of aid to Freeport, Bahamas, and provided transportation aboard Grand Celebration for over 1,400 documented people out of the disaster zone and to safety in Palm Beach County.
On Wednesday, they have the opportunity to make a second voyage, providing a direct shipment of food, water, medical supplies, and skilled volunteers to provide aid. In addition, the Bahamas Relief Cruise will provide transportation for people to safety.
Bahamas Relief Cruise has raised approximately $500,000- half of what they need to complete the mission. They are accepting donations at bahamasreliefcruise.org.
