THANK YOU For Helping Us Help The Bahamas
SUN ‘n FUN and the Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE) initiated a relief effort to send supplies to those affected by the devastation of Hurricane Dorian in the Islands of The Bahamas. The response from the community was TREMENDOUS!
To date, we have shipped over 125 tons of relief supplies directly to the areas of The Bahamas with the highest needs with the assistance of our partners.
Are you or your organization still actively collecting supplies? We suggest you contact:
Located in Miami, FL, Tropic Ocean Airways has partnered with the Discovery Land Company Foundation and Global Empowerment Mission (both are 501 C(3) non-profits) to facilitate donations for all efforts. Working closely with Blue Tide Marine of Ft. Lauderdale, and the Bahamian Government, they are beginning phase two which involves direct missions to communities in hard to reach areas (small barrier islands or areas where roads are impassable) focusing on gathering up-to-date intelligence, distributing relief supplies, and assisting with planning of rebuilding efforts.
