West End, Grand Bahama Emergency Relief Fund

It’s a beautiful thing when love brings us all together to help those in need! As of 9/10, we’ve made 3 runs to West End, GB carrying a total of around 20,000lbs of emergency relief supplies. We’re now shifting to more of a “maintainability” mode with cook stoves, generators, air mattresses, etc.. Unfortunately, EVERYTHING takes longer to accomplish when you live on an island so our people will continue to need aid for the months to come! Presently, we’re scheduled to receive a large shipment(50,000lbs) of donated supplies from my hometown friends of Volusia County on Saturday morning. We have our cargo boats scheduled to be at the marina and ready to be loaded! Please keep the $$$ coming into the go fund me account so we can keep these boats fueled and moving! Thank you so much for your help! Vince West End Watersports The Purpose for this fund: Our quaint little fishing village of West End, Grand Bahama is being ravaged by a category 5 hurricane, “Dorian.”I’ve been blessed to call this friendly village of 1500 people my second home since 1992.The storm is forecast to stall over the island for nearly 36 hours with winds in excess of 180MPH which will cause total destruction of all homes, business structures, utilities, and personal property.All we can do is pray for preservation of life at this time.As of last night, September 1, 2019, We’ve been given notice from Bahamas Government that our first aid assistance will be welcomed with open arms.We’re working with many local friends and businesses that will begin making first responder runs to the island as soon as the weather permits.Please consider helping anyway you can!God bless,Vince
