The City of Miramar Deploys Relief Efforts to The Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian

MIRAMAR – The City of Miramar is committed to helping with hurricane relief efforts for the Bahamas in the wake of catastrophic Hurricane Dorian.

They are mobilizing their community to give as generously as they can to assist the people of the Bahamas who are suffering from its devastating aftermath.

Miramar’s Mayor, Vice Mayor and Commissioners are actively involved in relief efforts.

“The City of Miramar grieves with our Bahamian neighbors as they recover and rebuild from the devastating impacts of Hurricane Dorian. I ask all residents, the Miramar corporate community and friends of the Bahamas to support our efforts to donate critical supplies needed for relief,” said Mayor Wayne Messam.

Vice Mayor, Alexandra P. Davis is working directly with the Bahamas Consul General in Miami, Linda Mackey, to ensure that the residents of the Bahamas get the supplies that are needed.

Vice Mayor Davis said, “As a city we empathize with our brothers and sisters in the Bahamas and as elected officials with roots in the islands, we know all too well what is takes to rebuild with such limited resources…for this reason it is imperative that we help.”

Multicultural Festival

This Saturday, September 7th, Commissioner Maxwell B. Chambers is hosting a free Multicultural Festival in Miramar at City Hall, located at 2300 Civic Center Place, Miramar, Fl 33025. Attendees are being asked to make a donation of $10 to benefit the relief efforts.

Commissioner Yvette Colbourne is working with local churches to secure drop off locations for your donations.

After stocking up for our own needs in anticipation of the hurricane, most of us here in South Florida now have surplus supplies that can be shared with those most in need and we are encouraging everyone to contribute in some way.
