Alyssa Gay Consulting, a local, full-service marketing agency, has partnered with the Green Turtle Cay Foundation and local businesses to organize donation drop-off locations for the collection of supplies. Donations collected prior to Friday, September 13, 2019, will be sent directly to Bahamian residents affected by Hurricane Dorian.
Currently, the following organizations are listed as donation drop-off locations: Sun Window & Door (7808 Cortez Road, Bradenton), PAINT Nail Bar (1417 1st Street, #1010, Sarasota), Pinnacle Chiropractic (8450 Cooper Creek Blvd., #104, Bradenton), Jim Gay CPA (3984 SR 64, Bradenton), Discovery Village of Sarasota Bay (1414 69th Ave W, Bradenton), Evangel Baptist Church (3605 Lorraine Rd., Bradenton) and Studio:K2G (4652 SR 64, Bradenton, FL). A current list of businesses, locations and hours can be found at https://alyssagay.com/hurricane-relief-for-green-turtle-cay/.
A full list of requested items can be found on the Alyssa Gay Consulting website; high-priority items include tarps, tents, generators, chainsaws, handheld radios, bug repellent, mosquito netting, air mattresses, box fans, hand pumps, solar lamps, batteries and water purification tablets/kits, along with non-perishable foods.
Alyssa Gay Consulting owner & founder, Alyssa Gay, contacted the Green Turtle Club, as the organization started assessing damages and worked on a plan to move forward with relief efforts for Green Turtle Cay. The Green Turtle Club has an established 501c3, The Green Turtle Cay Foundation, along with a GoFundMe which is going to be used for relief supplies specifically for the residents of Green Turtle Cay. All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
“Green Turtle Cay is a place that holds great significance for my husband, Taylor, and I. Just a few days prior to Hurricane Dorian, we were on that very Island, celebrating with people we have grown to know and cherish,” said Alyssa Gay of Alyssa Gay Consulting. “The devastation is heartbreaking, and we knew we needed to find a way to help. This island is suffering great loss, including loss of power with hardly any reliable methods of communication, and we decided to find a way to have an impact by utilizing friends, partners, and businesses in our community.”
Donated items will be delivered to the Avid Warehouse in West Palm Beach on Saturday, September 14, 2019. Donations can be made directly through the Green Turtle Cay Foundation website, and supporters can also purchase a limited edition Reef+Ledge hoodie featuring the #BahamasStrong tagline, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Green Turtle Cay Foundation. For those unable to visit the drop-off locations, items can be purchased online and sent to Avid Warehouse, located at 7656 Byron Dr, #B12, West Palm Beach, FL 33404.
