We are all aware of the devastation caused to the southern Bahamas by Hurricane Joaquin. Long Island, Rum Cay, Crooked & Acklins were by far the most damaged with the storm sitting over southern Long Island for 36 hours straight with winds topping 135 mph.
Prior to the tragedy, I had started a drive to bring much needed school supplies to Long Island with the guidance & assistance of Ms. Dawn Simmons of the Ministry of Tourism (Salt Pond) along with local educators. Below is a list as sent to me prior to the storm.
