Help Hurricane Dorian Survivors in the Bahamas by Making Donations

Hurricane Dorian devastated the northern Bahamas. The Catagory 5 hurricane stalled over the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahamas Island for two days. The winds were destructive, and they experienced relentless flooding, which has likely destroyed more than 10,000 homes. It has also wiped out much of the infrastructure, especially in the Abacos.

We were fortunate here in South Florida. We could have experienced much of the same devasting damage. The Bahamas generates much of its income from tourism, and Hurrican Dorian had a significant impact on their primary source. It’s time to step up and help in any way you can. Below you will find a list of items needed.

International Van Lines

International Van Lines will be taking care of collecting and shipping donations to the Bahamas. IVL is a lisenced freight forwarder and will be working directly with Tropical Shipping to insure all donations make it to their destination promptly.
