Help is on the way at the airport as Mission Change loaded up the donations gathered to fly over to the bahamas.

The group gathered supplies and necessary goods to aid those affected by Hurricane Irene in the Bahamas. An area very dear to their heart , members actually lived on the island of Eleuthra for over a year. The town was affected by Irene, and had many roofs and structures destroyed. The organization was impressed by the amount of donations of tarps, rope, building materials and food from Albany. They will plan a mission trip to the islands to help out.

Co Founder, LaDonna Urick says, "We definitely want to be able to go over and clean up with them and let them know they are a part of our community no matter where we are at."

 To make any monetary donations or find out about the upcoming mission trip visit Missionchange.com.
