BMH Volunteer Schedule Request
We at have been overwhelmed by the support and response to Hurricane Dorian. We have adjusted our volunteer team registering process to allow for youth teams to still come to Eleuthera and certain other islands but adult teams to begin registering interest for Dorian-affected areas. We will attempt to schedule and confirm for Abaco and Grand Bahama as soon as we can.
