Third Wave Volunteers - a Nonprofit Organization based in Miami, Florida is currently embedded in working disaster relief in the Bahamas. Serranno Baillou-Blackwood and his family owned and operated Da Drop Off restaurant in Abacos since 2013. He ran it with his wife and supported their three children with this business. It was their dream.
Dorian left him with nothing. Only the tiled floors remain. The building is shattered to splinters and tossed like rubbish into the surrounding trees, yet the family has sworn to rebuild.
Third Wave is attempting to rapidly put in place a shipping container restaurant to replace what was lost in the storm. A space that can be used currently as a communcal kitchen for those left with no means to cook as well as serving as a restaurant so that he may get back to work and care for his family. This storm demolished these islands like nothing we have ever seen before. Dorian stalled over them at above a Cat Five for almost two days. Getting a restaurant here post haste would not only help this family but assist all of the residents, organizations, aid workers, and reconstruction crews that currently have nowhere to eat. This is a solution that will immediately benefit and impact lives. We have a shipping container restaurant unit waiting to be fitted out with kitchen equipment as soon as the money is raised.
You can use this donation as a tax write off as Third Wave Volunteers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit orgnization which makes your contribution tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. Aid like this would be a beautiful thing to do for a family and an island that was left with nothing.
Let us make strides to give this community back a ray of hope for the future.
Thank you in advance for anything you might be able to do to help,
With love and light,
All of us at Third Wave Volunteers
