LIMA — Physical therapy provider CORA Health Services is mobilizing more than 200 clinics across the Southeast and Midwest to collect donations for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas.
The company will be accepting hygiene and medical supplies, canned goods and other essentials at its clinics, including the corporate office on Shawnee Road, now through Sept. 20.
“We are witnessing a humanitarian crisis for the people of Grand Bahama and the Abaco islands,” Javier Othon, executive vice president and CEO of CORA Physical Therapy, said in a statement. “Bahamians are suffering and they need our help during the darkest days; it’s critically important that we use our platform and resources to do our part in providing these communities with basic necessities such as food, medical and hygiene supplies and other non-perishable items that quite simply are non-existent there today.”
Accepted donations include: deodorant, feminine products, razors, shaving cream, shampoo, conditioner, bar or liquid soaps, toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, brushes, hair ties, canned goods, manual can openers, water, face and dust masks, flashlights, gas containers, hand and foot warmers, batteries (D included), trash bags, cleaning and baby wipes, diapers, baby formula, non-perishable food items, hand sanitizer, mosquito spray, sunscreen, tents, adhesive and non-adhesive bandages, rubbing alcohol, gauze, tape, acetaminophen, aspirin, ibuprofen, rubbing alcohol and peroxide.
