How to Help Victims of Hurricane Dorian

E. Benjamin Data News Staff Writer

As a City that knows what the devastation of a Hurricane can leave behind; New Orleans is still recovering from the ravages of Katrina.

Recently, Hurricane Dorian slammed into the Bahamas as a Category 5 Storm and battering Grand Bahama, the Abacos and other islands for several days.

This storm flooded and decimated entire communities. The official death toll is still undetermined, as the number is expected to rise as rescue workers reach more areas.

As we know it will be a long road to rebuilding and many from the local area from the business, civic and faith communities are already pitching in to help.

Data News Weekly in the spirit of help is providing a short list as a guide for those who want to help.

Also, of note, there are many ways to help outside of donating to these organizations listed.

In the spirit of giving back, we ask of our citizens to help our brothers and sisters in the Bahamas.
