The Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity launches relief efforts for The Bahamas Saturday in Riviera Beach
The effort will be based in Palm Beach County, but partners with the fraternity statewide--and in Freeport, Grand Bahama
WEST PALM BEACH - The Palm Beach County-based chapters of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity are partnering with their brothers in Freeport, Grand Bahama, to provide support in the wake of Hurricane Dorian—and the collection efforts start tomorrow in Riviera Beach.

The launch will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, September 7 at the Judge Edward Rodgers Center for Community Development, 251 W. 11th Street. The center opened last year in the name of their brother, Palm Beach County's first black judge, who died last year.

Items that are collected at the Center will be taken to First Class Sea Cargo in Miami, which will deliver them directly to affected areas in the Bahamas. Click here for more details, including a list of needed items. The attachment was provided by the Alphas in Freeport.

The West Palm Beach-based chapter, Delta Delta Lambda, is the is local host. The Alphas in Freeport have established a GoFundMe page in support of The Bahamas; click here to visit the site.
