The University has embarked on a campus-wide relief effort for those in the Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian.
The Palm Beach Atlantic community joined together for a prayer vigil Sunday evening in the DeSantis Family Chapel.
The University’s Workship office in the William G. Lassiter Student Center, 900 S. Olive Ave., is a collection site for supplies donated to the Green Turtle Cay Foundation and Eagles’ Wings Foundation. No used clothes will be accepted.
Green Turtle Cay Foundation is collecting the following:
Eagles’ Wings Foundation is collecting:
Battery Operated Lights
Small BBQ Grills
Antibiotic Ointment Bleach
Mosquito Nets & Spray
Air Mattresses & Pumps
Because cash is the most immediate, useful and versatile way to give, the University has also publicized a donation page for Green Turtle Cay Foundation, Eagles’ Wings Foundation and Samaritan’s Purse.
At this time, there are no confirmed volunteer trips. Relief organizations are determining the needs in the affected areas.
