True to its mantra of covering every Island, Rock and Cay in the Bahamas ,BTC has answered the call to assist residents of the storm ravaged Ragged Island, joining forces with Our Grand Bahama (OGB) to bring much-needed relief in the form of care packages for the scores of families displaced by the passage of Hurricane Irma.
Through a joint collaboration with the Ragged Island Association, BTC and Our Grand Bahama will provide 30 care packages filled with non-perishable food items, toiletries, water, generators and portable stoves, all in an effort to bringing some relief to the people affected by Hurricane Irma.
