Relief Info Phone Number: 772-214-9064 - please ONLY call if you can’t find info you need another way. Thank you!
Here’s How You Can Help:
1. Donate Funds - Operation 300 has set up a dedicated account to receive tax deductible funds that will be used to purchase supplies, jet fuel and whatever else is needed during this effort. 100% of these funds will go to aid the people of the Bahamas... in particular the outer islands including Green Turtle Cay, Guana Cay, Hopetown, Man-O-War Cay and Elbow Cay
2. Donate Goods - Bring items to Witham Field in Stuart, FL. We are open for collections daily from 3:00pm - 6pm. Please do not attempt to drop off items before or after these hours of operation as our volunteers need the morning & evening hours to effectively sort and box received materials. Here’s the Address / Directions: 1845 SE Airport Rd, Stuart, FL - From A1A turn onto Airport Road - turn left at the Operation 300 trailer. You’ll see Hanger 3 ahead. Items are being transported via private planes, helos, barges & boats that are suited & approved for delivery to the islands.
As of 9/11, we’ve collected nearly 8 million pounds of relief items and have transported almost 2 million pounds directly to the affected islands. These items go from your trunk directly to the people in need. NO MIDDLE MEN!
Items needed are toiletries, diapers, trash bags, tarps, first aid kits, non perishable foods, can openers, beef jerky, nuts, flashlights, chainsaws, gloves, extension cords, generators (new in box), medical supplies, grills, charcoal, propane, lanterns, batteries, chainsaws, trimmers, hammers, nails, blowers, shovels, rakes, machetes, pry bars, hand saws, etc. Please NO GLASS!
Click Here for our Amazon wishlist - As we visit each island, we learn what item those individuals need most. The wishlist is updated routinely to reflect this accumulation of information. Items purchased from this wishlist are delivered directly to our drop site.
3. Donate Time - We need people to man the collection center. We have created an online sign up sheet so you can easily grab a slot. We will create additional days & slots as needed so check back often. If slots are filled please come anyway…we are using the signup sheet just to be sure we have coverage…we can always use more hands!
4. Able Bodies - We are putting together teams of 8-10 people to go to the islands for stints of 3-4 days. These are not sight-seeing tours. This is hard labor clean up. .
