Gleaning For The World, in partnership with Thomas Road Baptist Church and Foster Fuels, has sent its first planeload of disaster relief supplies to the Bahamas, devastated by Hurricane Dorian earlier this week.
A private Cessna Citation II airplane left Lynchburg Regional Airport Wednesday afternoon bound for Marsh Harbor on Abaco Island in the Bahamas, bringing with it critically needed supplies to those devastated by Hurricane Dorian. GFTW and TRBC plan to establish partnerships in an effort to continue bringing supplies to the Bahamas over the next several weeks.
In addition, as Hurricane Dorian continues its trek up the East Coast of the U.S., potentially affecting the Carolinas, GFTW will continue to collect disaster relief supplies at Sam's Club on Wards Road in Lynchburg through 6 pm Thursday, September 5th.
