Disaster Relief

SCTB is coordinating disaster relief efforts for Hurricane Dorian!

Somebody Cares Tampa Bay is opening its warehouse to receive donations for Hurricane Dorian disaster relief. We are working with Somebody Cares International and other vetted organizations.

From Somebody Cares International:

"...one ministry is collecting supplies that will be shipped to their facility in Freeport, and a large private boat is taking supplies from Fort Lauderdale to Green Turtle Cay. Our Somebody Cares Puerto Rico chapter--still involved with rebuilding from Hurricane Maria--has offered to 'pay it forward' by sending resources and manpower, once a logistical plan is in place; and relief partner CRI is collecting solar lights and water filtration units to send over."

While this is great news, there are still many critical needs for Bahamians. Please consider sharing the following items:
