Hurricane Relief Collection

Wellington was fortunate to weather Hurricane Dorian without impact. Now that our Village is back to normal operations, we will do our part and give back to our neighbors in the Bahamas who have lost everything.

The Village is partnering with area relief agencies to deliver collected supplies to the Bahamas, periodically, from September 9 through September 21, 2019.  

Collected supplies will be used to meet storm-related needs and support long-term recovery efforts in the Bahamas. These items have been requested directly by the Government of the Bahamas.
