JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Wicked Barley Brewing Company wants to help folks in the Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian with long-time regulars Elona and Charles Appleby. The Applebys have family in the Bahamas and even own a marina and restaurant in the Abacos Islands.
Hurricane Dorian's landfall on the island was devastating. The Applebys immediately wanted to help their friends and neighbors in the Bahamas and Wicked Barley Brewing offered to help.
Elona and Charlie Appleby, along with the rest of the Appleby family are organizing immediate assistance to the Bahamas by chartering private jets with supplies for rebuilding shelters, food and water, clothing, etc. They will be landing in Nassau today loading the supplies onto the boats and then boating to the Abacos Friday morning.
They are asking folks to drop off supplies at Wicked Barley Brewing. They will arrange to send the supplies to the Bahamas as soon as it is safe to do so.
The Applebys have also set up a Go Fund Me Page.
All the supplies collected will go directly to Nassau, they will then be distributed though several channels to the people in need.
