WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW?

The immediate needs of the Bahamians are being met. Now, we must move to the next phase of our support effort and help them rebuild. While we are still vetting opportunities to assist with rebuilding, here are a few projects we have already started.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR FREEPORT

After receiving a request from Altamarae Elvies (Principal of Freeport Bible Academy) for assistance with obtaining school supplies for 1,000 students on Grand Bahama, we reached out to the Tampa Bay Rays for support.

The Rays gathered funds (over $12,000) and utilized their corporate partnerships to procure the requested items which were shipped directly to Albert Whitted airport. We have been loading the supplies on flights for delivery to Freeport.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for further updates on this project.

LITTLE ABACO ROOF REBUILDS

Four days after Dorian passed over the Abaco Islands, we placed a small team of skilled individuals on the ground to assist with supply distribution and to provide updated communications about conditions on the ground. During their 14 day stay, our team identified 3 families in need of new roofs in Little Abaco.

SERVPRO of Central St. Pete heard about this project and stepped up to help. They’ve provided a team of skilled laborers who have helped load The Glory (a 142′ cargo vessel) with building supplies. The team then assisted with unloading the supplies in Green Turtle Cay and are actively working on rebuilding the roofs.

HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE & FLY IN

Kevin Morris, Chief Councilor of West Grand Bahama District Council, sent us a request for help provisioning Christmas gifts for 1,000 children and 750 elderly who reside on Grand Bahama. Holiday Gift Drives are one of our favorite ways to be involved with the communities we help and we also see this as a great opportunity to mobilize our volunteer pilot community!

Good360 has partnered with us to fulfill the large gift order and they’ll be delivering the items to us at Albert Whitted ready for transport. If you’re a volunteer pilot who’s been waiting to get involved, the Fly In and delivery of the gifts is the perfect opportunity!

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page (and if you’re a volunteer pilot then watch your inbox!) for updates.
