Briland Food Bank Campaign

The coronavirus pandemic has devastated Harbour Island’s tourism-based economy. Virtually all of the island’s main sources of employment—hotels, restaurants, marinas, and many other businesses—have been closed to prevent the spread of the disease. Almost overnight, hundreds have been thrown out of work, losing paychecks that they and their families depended on for basic needs, including food. No one knows when they will be able to get back to their jobs.

To help in the meantime, Br-Island Responsible Development (B-I-R-D) is raising funds to help provide food and other essential household products for those in need through the Briland Food Bank (aka the Harbour Island Food Bank as well as the Harbour Island and North Eleuthera Food Bank)  in conjunction with a number of Harbour Island businesses, organizations and individuals, including Member of Parliament Ricky Mackey; longstanding Harbour Island resident, philanthropist and businesswoman India Hicks; attorney and businessman Paul King; Captain Bob's; Ocean View; and the Green School, to name a few.  We're asking you to please step up, if you can, by making a generous financial contribution for this purpose. 

B-I-R-D (https://www.br-island.org/) was established in 2019 to promote responsible development on Harbour Island. We care deeply about the island and would like to assist in preventing hardship during these uncertain times. 

** If you are aware of someone organizing a community food program who could benefit from this fundraising, please email B-I-R-D**
