What to Know

  • Russell says the city has opened all fire stations as drop off points for items as well as the Christ Episcopal Church in Coconut Grove.

South Floridians may be watching to see the next move of Hurricane Dorian, but some members of the community have begun the process of helping out those in the Bahamas after the massive storm’s strike this weekend.

Community leaders such as Miami city commissioner Ken Russell as well as community organizer Valencia Gunder and Ruban Roberts, chapter president of the Miami-Dade NAACP, are collecting items to send to those who had their homes and lives devastated when the storm hit with winds around 185 miles per hour.

Russell says the city has opened all fire stations as drop off points for items as well as the Christ Episcopal Church in Coconut Grove.

“We’re very fortunate on this side and to know what they’re going through, what’s happening is devastating,” Russell said in an interview with NBC 6’s Carlos Suarez.

Residents can also donate items such as toiletries, water and canned food items at the Community Emergency Operations Center located at 5120 Northwest 24th Avenue.

A GoFundMe account has been established to collect financial donations.
