The devastation in the Bahamas has been heartbreaking, but the wonderful outpouring of support for our Caribbean neighbors has been beautiful. We made a big difference, and we couldn’t have done it without you. We’d like to thank our partners and the community members who donated money or supplies to make an impact. Thanks to you, we were able to spread a little hope to people who are struggling to survive.
Too Cool Traffic School
Too Cool Traffic School served as a community collection point and collected various essentials for the people in the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island where the Category 5 hurricane destroyed nearly everything in its wake. Some of the items collected were canned food, water, pet food, and diapers. Thank you 2Cool Team for making a difference!
We were so thankful for the contributions made by Chargebacks911! In addition to making a donation that we were able to use for more items to send over, they also collected bedding, air mattresses, diapers and tons of other supplies that went to our Caribbean neighbors. This is what changing the world is all about.
USF Marine Science Advisory Committee – MSAC
The amazing students from the USF Marine Science Advisory Committee – MSAC finished their Bahama hurricane drive and collected a bunch of supplies to send to the people in the Bahamas. The people who lost everything during the hurricane are desperately in need, and every little bit helps. Thank you for putting in the effort to change someone’s world! And they even went out of their way to deliver it straight to the warehouse, thank you!
Boricuas de Corazón Inc & JJ Lyon Guard Foundation
We’d like to particularly recognize and thank Boricuas de Corazón Inc and JJ LYON GUARD Foundation who are facilitating the sorting and distribution of the supplies. This is such a critical role, and if you’re in the Tampa area, we encourage you to stop by and lend a hand while they are collecting and distributing supplies. There’s a ton of stuff in the warehouse that needs to be sorted before it can be sent! After dropping off the supplies, CWOO co-founder Kayla King stayed to chat with Linda and helped fill bags of toiletries that could easily be distributed on the ground.
The warehouse will be open until October 9th to accept supplies and volunteers. If you’d like to volunteer, they’re open 7 days a week (9am – 7pm) and you can come in for as long or as little as you’d like! The address is: 802 N 12th St. Tampa, FL 33602.
