Lauderhill Opens an Official Bahamas Relief Drop Off Location for Donations
Official Bahamas Relief Drop Off
The City of Lauderhill Official Bahamas Relief Drop Off location has been an overwhelming success. A number of truck loads have been filled and delivered while supplies are still coming in. Today is the last day the Lauderhill Drop Off location will be open. Go to www.lauderhill-fl.gov/dorianrelief for more information, including other drop off locations available in the County (provided by Broward County Emergency Management). We thank all that have volunteered to work the Lauderhill Drop Off location. We are especially grateful for the donations from our generous residents and businesses!
