Images released from the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian show pure devastation all across the area, and many people are reaching out a hand to offer help however they can.

One of the largest relief efforts in Southwest Florida kicks off this Saturday with “Meals of Hope” planning to send 100,000 meals to the Bahamas.

WINK News took a look inside the warehouse where pallets of food are ready to be put together, but 300 volunteers are needed to assemble the meals.

Volunteers are meeting at Naples High School this Saturday from 9 a.m.- 11 p.m. to put the packages together and send to the victims.

Packages include things like hygiene products, toiletries and diapers.

Donations can also be made, because they need about $6,000 to cover the packing and shipping costs to get the food and supplies to the areas in need.
