While Florida residents breathed a sigh of relief that Hurricane Dorian mostly passed them by, the storm wreaked havoc in the Bahamas.
Life Care Center of Palm Bay, Florida’s associates decided to do something about it, and the facility partnered with Brevard County Re/Max offices to collect needed items for those affected by the hurricane. The drive ran for one week.
“It filled my heart to be able to help organize this drive for those less fortunate,” said Sherry Davis, environmental services director. “Their lives were devastated by Hurricane Dorian, and they are not forgotten. Seeing my fellow employees rally together made me proud to be part of the Life Care team.”
On Sept. 12, associates filled the center’s van with nonperishable food, clothing, cleaning supplies and medical supplies and delivered them to the Re/Max office. The relief supplies shipped out to the Bahamas on Sept. 13.
