Much Needed Aide Delivered To Bahamas Today

Report Date: September 6, 2019

LONG DAY
BIG DAY

BAHAMAS RELIEF UPDATE AT THE STUART JET CENTER 2501 SE AVIATION WAY.

BIG DAY TODAY 18 RELIEF FLIGHTS TO WEST END, GRAND CAY, TREASURE CAY AND MARSH HARBOR. 3 BOX TRUCKS SENT SOUTH FOR PLANES IN PALM BEACH, 2 BOX TRUCKS FOR A BOAT OUT OF SAILFISH MARINA, 3 PICK UPS FOR A BOAT TO GRAND BAHAMA.

None of this could be done without all of our gracious donations and big hearts. The 100 plus volunteers and all the pilots.

We have had some speed bumps but as a large team we have overcome it. People come to help and it’s game on. People just fall into place and we became a well oiled machine after hammering out some logistics. The volunteers that make this operation possible are incredible and I thank you.

We have two hangars with supplies and 75ft by 25ft area of supplies on the Tarmac. My goal with more fixed wing assets is 25 flights tmrw. We’re extending our reach so it takes time but I hope we can make it happen.

With excellent intel I received tonight from local ER staff I know we have a new destination to look at tomorrow and it’s my goal we get approval and can make it happen.

All bullshit aside people need our help and we need to make it happen!

Prioritized needs:

Women’s hygiene products
Sanitary wipes
Hand sanitizer
Food (REM) protein bars
Fluid with electrolytes
Kids toys (this is a stressful time, let’s try to keep kids occupied and happy so parents can handle their family’s needs)

Our goal is to operate for 5 more days with air assets. But we will continue to need funding to support this monumental effort. Donations for fuel cost can be made directly to the Stuart Sailfish Club non for profit 501C3. Our goal is $250,000 and we have a long way to go. Every bit helps.

Some serious smiles when locals get what we take for granted everyday!
