Hurricane Dorian was a devastating Category 5 storm that battered the Bahamas for days, causing catastrophic damage and unfortunate loss of life.
The Town of Palm Beach United Way, in collaboration with the Town of Palm Beach, has created a recovery fund to help with long-term rebuilding efforts in the Bahamas.
The fund will be distributed to organizations focused on long-term aid and projects that will help the Bahamian people rebuild their homes, businesses and communities.
A grant allocation committee has been formed to review needs in the Bahamas, evaluate organizations capable of meeting those needs, and ultimately decide how best to allocate the funds entrusted to us.
Donations are tax deductible and 100% of collected funds will be distributed directly to the Bahamas for long-term recovery.
