Bahamas Relief Donations

Dear Colleagues and Students,

I hope this finds you in good health and high spirits. As you all know, Hurricane season is among us; here in St. Kitts and Nevis we have been fortunate and unaffected. Unfortunately, our neighbor The Bahamas was devastated by Hurricane Dorian. Dorian remained in The Bahamas for 48 hours causing tremendous damage; destroying everything in its path. Our neighbors need our help to rebuild their lives and homes. The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) at Windsor University School of Medicine is hosting a food and clothing drive to help alleviate some of the island’s burden.
We are collecting children/baby items, nonperishable foods, daily supply items, personal/feminine hygiene products and pet items in our effort to bring some relief to our beloved neighbors. I would like to invite all of you and your organizations/schools to help contribute towards this cause.
We are planning to send a 20-foot container through Tropical shipping; (shipping cost $2,500 USD). We have been fortunate in collecting $1,500 USD, and need approximately $1,000 USD more to meet our shipping goal. We need your help in collecting supplies and help with funds to send the container. Our goal is to ship the container before the end of October so they can receive the supplier in time. We would be collecting supplies/funds up to October 18, 2019.
The contact information and drop off locations are mentioned in the flyer below. Please feel free to give us a call if you are not able to reach the drop off locations so we can arrange alternatives. Please do not hesitate to contact me in case of any questions or ideas.

In solidarity,
