Our prayers are with everyone in the path of Hurricane Dorian, especially our Fraters and Loyal Ladies in The Bahamas who are affected. Major casualties have been suffered, and we still await what lies ahead in the wake of such a powerful storm system. We ask that God provide favor and a hedge around those who have bared the brunt the storm, and those on the coast who are facing the inevitable in the days ahead.
Working with our contacts in Nassau, we have been able to activate our disaster relief response process, as well as developed a list of needed items and a way to get them to our Fraters and Loyal Ladies in the affected areas.
Below is the information that was sent to me by G.I.G. Uriel D. Johnson, 33°. I have authorized him to act as our Logistics Lead in the Bahamas with the support of S.G.I.G. Roscow Davies, 33° Deputy of the Orient.
I am requesting all Consistories and Assemblies solicit items from their members and make shipments according to the instructions in the attachment. Send notifications of shipment to Cathedral Secretary and Stateside Coordinator S.G.I.G. Raynard Hughes, 33° at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (215) 545-2443. No donation is too small or insignificant when helping those in need.
Yours in the Rite,
Illustrious Melvin J. Bazemore, 33°
Sovereign Grand Commander
