SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY SEP 7, 2019

For those looking to contribute to relief efforts in the wake of Hurrican Dorian’s devastating impact on The Bahamas, local business-owner Thomas Bethel, a native Bahamian, has started a grassroots philanthropic organization to help collect, organize and ship much-needed supplies to the island nation.

Called Florida Suncoast for The Northern Bahamas, the organization that started on Facebook just this past Wednesday is currently establishing drop-off points throughout Sarasota and Bradenton for volunteers to donate their time, labor or any number of needed supplies, including medical and hygiene items, bedding and clothes, food and water, and even building supplies to help restore damaged homes and construct new shelters.

Through a partnership with Odyssey Aviation and the Bahamian government, these items will then be flown and shipped to relief workers in The Bahamas.

FOR MORE INFORMATION REGARDING WHERE TO FIND DROP-OFF POINTS IN THE AREA, LISTS OF NEEDED ITEMS AND HOURS OF OPERATION, PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW TO THE ORGANIZATION’S FACEBOOK PAGE.

Through this page, volunteers and donors can also get in contact with Bethel and other organizers, to answer any questions and even volunteer.
