Although it is rather last minute we want to do our share to help the Bahamians as they have lost so much in the past 16 months. After weathering the devastating impact from Dorian they received a one-two punch from Covid-19. Tourism accounts for approximately 60% of the GDP and the island chain has been shut down. An example is the popular winter boating spot in Georgetown, Exuma. At this time of year there are typically 150 boats but currently only 40. The people are suffering great losses. Truly, every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated by the Bahamians.
We are continuing our support for the children (schools) and for the animals (Humane Society Exuma Animal Clinic) as we did the previous two years. If you would like to join us here’s how: drop off items below (even if they are only partiallyfull), send us items, cash to purchase the items, or order online and have them delivered to:
