Bahamas Relief Collection at the University of Florida 

by Damon Veras, Intern for the ACDEC, and “The Beaty Bunch”

As I watched the news coverage of Hurricane Dorian reel in, I felt a deep sense of empathy for our southeastern neighbors. While some might ask how the situation in the Bahamas has any impact on us here in Gainesville, I believe that it’s very important to remember that we are all directly or indirectly affected by the natural disasters that form around us regardless of who experiences a direct hit. 

My roommates and I were joined by our next door neighbors in Beaty Towers-West (“The Beaty Bunch”) as we all quickly began reaching out to student organizations, contacting the press, as well as designing a flyer and creating donation collection boxes. 



Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe is teaming up with us to help our cause. All donations to the Mayor's office (200 East University Ave Gainesville FL 32601) will be consolidated with the ones at our main site: 1000 SW 9th ST.

There will be a donation box for anyone wanting to drop off items there. Please contact the Mayor's office with any questions regarding their collection box here:
