currently collecting cases of bottled water as well as diapers for the
ships to take back to The Bahamas when they return. Anyone wishing to
help should drop the items at the Palm Avenue Public Works facility in
Key West, located between Stedman's Boat Yard and the entrance to Trumbo
Point. Just pull in near the old bus bays. We are collecting the goods
until 8 pm tonight, and tomorrow from 7 am until 4 pm.

Thank you! Let's do what we can to aid our sister islanders!"
