SUBJECT: HURRICANE DORIAN COLLECTION DRIVE - Monday, September 16th - Wednesday, September 18th

FROM: American Heritage School


Dear Students & Parents:

Thank you for helping make Phase 1 of our hurricane relief efforts such a huge success. A big thank you to the Pudney family for connecting us with Blue Tide Marine and Tropic Ocean Airways, and Skydive Suffolk. Below is a picture of our buckets loaded on the plane to be air dropped to people in the Bahamas:

We are now ready to implement Phase 2, which will provide ongoing support for families in need. We will be collecting the items listed below from Monday, September 16th - Wednesday, September 18th.

American Heritage School (Plantation) will be working with RAV Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund for this phase of the relief effort. RAV is one of the largest real estate development companies specializing in projects in the Bahamas and throughout the Caribbean for over 25 years. They are working diligently with Bahamian government agencies to ensure all relief goods are distributed where they are most needed using proper protocol.  Thank you to the Ramirez/Carrizosa family for connecting us with RAV.

Starting on Monday (September 16th), items can be dropped at any of our bag drop locations during morning arrival. The drive will end on Wednesday, September 18th, so please plan accordingly. We ask that you please bring your items packed in a box to make it easier for us to load and unload the truck.
