Additionally, Baha Mar urges all attendees to #PackWithLove and bring an item or two to be shared directly with victims of Hurricane Dorian. Articles can include clothing, shoes, baby items, books, educational supplies, stuffed animals and small toys. Baha Mar has given $2 million to immediate disaster relief and long-term recovery for the islands thus far.
