In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, both The Abacos and Grand Bahama suffered considerable damage and devastation. The overwhelming loss of many families in the Bahamas has inspired The Coca-Cola Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Coca Cola Company, to pledge $400,000 to the Salvation Army of The Bahamas for immediate disaster relief assistance.

The Salvation Army of the Bahamas is tasked with providing resources for emergency food and shelter for people in need. To facilitate this enormous undertaking, Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC), local bottler of Coca-Cola beverages, will work closely together with the Salvation Army. Already instrumental in the distribution of quality beverages to the those islands, CBC has also offered all available machinery and manpower to ensure donated supplies are directly delivered into the hands of the people and families that need them most.

“Hurricane Dorian caused unseen devastation to both The Abacos and Grand Bahama” noted Caribbean Bottling Co. CEO, Walter Wells. “At this time, we offer our deepest condolences as well as our commitment to support the Bahamian communities that we serve.”

In wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian, the entire team at CBC has come together in aid of their fellow countrymen. Fully committed to supporting the communities of both Grand Bahama and Abaco, CBC pledges to prioritize this initiative. At present, CBC has donated water and soft drinks, food items, volunteer hours, cots, power generators and other essential items to community shelters, hospitals and other local community organizations. Understanding that this initiative is an ongoing commitment, CBC is devoted to rebuilding a sense of community and will continue to partner with local organizations to achieve this.

At this time, the Salvation Army is instrumental in identifying the needs of families who have experienced tremendous loss, and are extremely grateful for Coca-Cola Co.’s donation and support. "The Salvation Army of the Bahamas is thankful to both the Coca-Cola Foundation and Caribbean Bottling Bahamas for their partnership in helping to give hope to the many families impacted by Hurricane Dorian” noted Major Clarence Ingram, Salvation Army’s Divisional Commander. “Our partnership with a great community-minded and philanthropic company like Coca-Cola is excellent.”
