Aerial footage of Great Abaco shows destruction caused by Hurricane Dorian
A Columbia institution is stepping up to help those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.
Benedict College is collecting donations to send relief supplies to the islands. The college is requesting a variety of items, from medicine to hygiene products, disposable kitchenware and clothing.
Hurricane Dorian plowed the Caribbean nation, becoming stationary on Monday night as a Category 5 hurricane and causing mass destruction, especially on the Abaco and Grand Bahama islands. At least 20 people were killed during the storm, according to officials’ preliminary death tolls.
All donations should be dropped off on the first floor of Benedict’s office of student activities, which is in the DHS Campus Center (1616 Oak St.).
