Rotary response for assistance following the devastating hurricane Dorian involves efficient direct interaction between clubs here and clubs in the areas needing assistance. For the exceptional situation in the Bahamas, two Rotary districts are involved: District 6990 for Grand Bahamas, and District 7090 for the remaining Bahama Islands.  
 
Our club President Elect Fred Licata said he will make sure items brought to our meetings will  be taken to the District 6990 collection locations.  The Downtown Boca Raton Club is collecting needed items at their weekly luncheon Noon on Fridays at the Renaissance Hotel in Boca Raton near Town Center.  They also will take these items to the District 6990 collection centers for transfer to Rotary Grand Bahamas club. Several containers are shipped over each week as needed.
 
Items needed include baby supplies such as diapers, baby wipes, formula; cleaning supplies such as rubber gloves, Clorox, detergent, paper towels, mops; feminine hygiene products; sunscreen; canned foods.  A more extensive list can be found on the District 6990 website click here. 
 
Additionally, financial donations can be made via several web sites:
