Pilots fly supplies from SWFL to storm-ravaged Bahamas

Published: Updated:

NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — Southwest Florida pilots are flying supplies to people in the Bahamas who are dealing with heavy damage in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.

They’re taking thousands of dollars worth of locally donated food, water and generators to victims of the storm.

The effort represents collaboration from several local businesses and organizations. Naples-based Europe American Aviation and Prime Planes donated air fuel, while Jammin on 5th, a Naples clothing store, chipped in $500 worth of food.

ABC Pest Control of Cape Coral donated food and water. Anderson Eye Care of Naples sent clothes, and Primrose Academy Day Care in North Naples sent a bus to help ship the clothes from the eye clinic to the airport.

You can help by dropping off supplies at one of the following locations:

  • ABC PEST CONTROL: 2719 S.W. Eighth Place, Cape Coral
  • ANDERSON EYE CARE: 1201 Piper Blvd. Suite 22, Naples
