South Florida residents have donated over 21 semi trucks filled with critically-needed supplies to residents of the Bahamas who have been impacted by Hurricane Dorian -- and an additional donation drive, which will provide another opportunity to support the people of the Bahamas, will take place this Thursday and Friday.
These relief drives are part of the #iHeartBahamas Relief Effort led by on-air personalities from all iHeartMedia South Florida broadcast brands and Mobile Mike at the Walmart in Miami Gardens on Thursday, September 12 and the Palm Beach Outlets in West Palm Beach on Friday, September 13 for all-day broadcasts to encourage listeners to donate new generators, plywood, construction materials, pop up tents, gas cans, unopened baby supplies, canned foods, sleeping items and unopened pet food. Another donation drive is scheduled for Friday, September 27 at the Vero Beach Outlets in Vero Beach, Florida.
“We salute the people of South Florida for their compassion and generosity-- we are thankful and amazed by the tremendous outpouring of support by our listeners and the people of South Florida,” said Greg Ashlock, President of the iHeartMedia Markets Group. “We feel privileged to connect people who want to help with those in need; Mobile Mike was a guiding force in ensuring that we were able to quickly create these donation drives and we want to thank everyone on our Miami team who broadcasted live, helped spread the word on-air and on social, packed boxes and trucks and donated themselves.”
