To help with the Bahamas hurricane relief efforts, the Brattleboro Rotary Club has donated $250 to the Rotary Disaster Network of Assistance. 
According to Brattleboro Rotary Club president Carla Lineback, the destruction left behind by Hurricane Dorian is devastating.
 
Lineback said, “In parts of the Bahamas, literally everything is gone, replaced by piles of rubble where homes once stood, roads blocked with debris and thousands on thousands left homeless and in need of supplies.
 
Brattleboro Rotary Club International Committee chair Rob Szpila noted that Grand Bahama Island and Abaco Island took a direct hit from Hurricane Dorian, with winds that reached 180 miles per hour.
 
“This storm has battered these islands and the rebuilding process will take years,” Szpila said, “Grand Bahama Island has 5 Rotary clubs.”
Lineback added, “At this point, Rotary is beginning phase 2 of its operation and while it will continue to deliver food, toiletries, and medical supplies for immediate needs it is preparing to obtain larger items to help rebuild the community. This includes fans, generators, trucks, buses and building supplies.”
