Dothan Relief drive for Bahamas starts Monday, September 16th

Dothan, Ala. (WTVY) -- Thousands are left missing and homeless after Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas.

Hurricane Dorian relief drive.

One Dothan man is teaming up with Helping Hands to collect supplies to send to the Bahamas.

Paul Wright is looking for volunteers to help collect donations next week.

He is asking the public to help by donating hygiene items, bottled water, nonperishable food-even handwritten notes and spiritual items.

Brother Wright is also asking for boxes to pack all of the donated items in.

He says that he felt he had to do something after he saw the path of destruction that Dorian left in the Bahamas.

"What if it was you, okay? What if it was you and your house? Of course you have friends, but if many of them have passed because of the storm, and you’re kind of there, all the stores are closed because they have been destroyed as well. You can’t get food, there’s nothing.” Wright says.

Supplies can be dropped off at the Houston County Farm Center where the relief drive will take place next Monday through Wednesday, September 16th, 17th, and 18th.

If you or someone you know wants to volunteer, or cannot make it to the drive at those times, contact Brother Paul Wright at (334) 350-0283.
