My fiancé, Steve Crane, and I are heart broken about the devastation Hurricane Dorian brought to our beloved Northern Bahamas. Grand Bahama Residents urgently need your generous help to source and deliver aid.
Steve has lived in Freeport, Grand Bahama for over 50 years. We are raising funds for Crossreach which is a Lucaya Presbyterian Church outreach ministry that was established over 20 years ago. The ministry stages food and necessities for ongoing distribution to some of the island’s most needy residents living in Gold Rock to the East, and Freeport, Lewis Yard and the Eight Mile Rock settlements to the West. Many recipients do not have the ability to get to a relief distribution location. The food and necessities purchased with your contributions will be sourced in the U.S., safely shipped to Grand Bahama and distributed by Crossreach directly to those in the greatest need.
Crossreach is supported by the LPC congregation and many other individuals throughout the community. It is a well-established ministry. Crossreach coordinates four teams of volunteers to normally distribute food each month and has volunteers who know the settlements well. Steve heads up one of the volunteer teams. The ministry has a donated warehouse facility to securely receive and collate supplies and no administrative overheads so every penny donated goes straight to the most needy without deduction.
