Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts

Hope for the Bahamas

This past week, Southeastern began offering several opportunities to take part in the relief efforts for the Bahamas. From Athletics to Student Development, there are several ways our community is coming together to support the Bahamas and those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Athletics Involvement

Donation drives were held during the SEU Home Soccer games this past Thursday & Friday night, and additional opportunities will continue to be added. 

Monday Night Chapel

Monday night chapel on September 9, at 7:30 and 9:00 p.m., will be dedicated to the relief efforts and prayer for those affected by Hurricane Dorian. All are encouraged to bring donations and a special offering will be taken up for relief efforts in the Bahamas.

Supplies collected will be given to Crossroads Alliance. One of our professors, Dr. Bob Houlihan, is chairman of Crossroads Alliance and Ministries, a non-profit organization dedicated to responding to victims of disastrous and chaotic conditions around the world. Donations needed include canned food, medicine, medical supplies for clinics, water, Gatorade, blankets, baby supplies, paper goods, MREs, and generators.

Giving Online

If you would like to make a donation toward hurricane relief in the Bahamas, you can give online to Convoy of Hope by clicking here. Convoy of Hope has already delivered seven plane loads of relief supplies to Freeport and Treasure Cay yesterday afternoon. In total, the planes carried approximately 3,000 pounds of clean water, tarps, ready-to-eat food items, Crisis Care Kits, diapers, wipes, formula, and two generators. Approximately 1,500 meals were provided to evacuees from Abaco that are now being housed in temporary shelters in Nassau. Follow their progress on social media.
