Palm Coast, FL - Individuals, organizations and businesses are helping in relief efforts for the Bahamas, including a couple of Palm Coast businesses.
St. Joe Plaza and St. Joe Business Center are part of the effort. They have reached out to Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Commonwealth of the Bahamas to find out what's needed most.
The business owners say there will be air transport from the Sanford airport carrying the supplies to the Bahamas. They say they will coordinate with them to make sure supplies are delivered when flights are leaving.
Many of the items needed include camping gear and supplies.
