Helping Rebuild the Main Hospital in Grand Bahama Island
In September 2019, Hurricane Dorian devastated Grand Bahama Island. The only hospital on the Island, Rand Memorial Hospital, was flooded. Repairs are ongoing but most of the basic and vital equipment must be replaced. The Rotary Clubs on the Island created project GBI Rx to help fund these expenses. The Rotary Club of Miami stepped up to help our neighbors and has pledged a minimum $50,000 contribution, and will match any & all contributions up to a total of $100,000. 
 
We invite you to join us in this effort through your tax-deductible contribution to this GBI Rx project. The funding part of this project will continue through the end of December 2020, so please contribute right away. Just use the PayPal on this page to contribute.

Assisting Girl Scouts in Overtown

So Linda volunteered to purchase two All Terrain Wagons for the Troop on the Club's behalf. We are so proud of the progress that Troop 1877 has had and we plan to continue to provide them assistance.
