Hurricane Dorian delivered catastrophic Category 5 damage and flooding to the people of the Bahamas last week. Tens of thousands of Bahamians are without power and many are now homeless in the wake of the storm. Those most affected where the Abacos Islands and Grand Bahama, which have combined populations of nearly 70,000 people.
To help those in need, The American Red Cross is collecting donations to provide supplies to the Bahamas.
At this time, it is a logistical challenge to deliver supplies to the islands, so the Red Cross is asking for monetary donations to do the most good. Any donations to help them get back on their feet will be immensely helpful!
