Everyone at the The Steve Harvey Morning Show has been keeping abreast on Hurricane Dorian and the terrifying wake of damage behind its passing. Though the storm has not completely settled down yet, there have already been a number of volunteers helping its victims in the Bahamas and those to come on the east coast.
CBS news shared few things people have been doing in the Florida area.
So far, Miami's city commissioner is asking citizens to donate goods they've purchased in preparation for Hurricane Dorian. There are 16 drop-off locations between fire stations and churches that are accepting water, canned goods, and baby formula. Hopes of shipping them off to the island by Wednesday.
Wold Central Kitchen's José Andrés is in the Bahamas ready to feed the hungry. Destroyed kitchens won't stop the dedicated chef, who's prepared to build a makeshift version to help the less fortunate.
Humane Society of United States has evacuated 80 animals from shelters across Florida in hopes of getting them adopted. Senior State Director for the Humane Society Kate MacFall explained:
"By transporting dogs and cats who were already up for adoption out of the region, we are able to increase the capacity of the threatened communities as they prepare for flooding and an anticipated influx of displaced animals. A lot of these animals are big dogs with lots of love to give, and they will make fantastic family members."
Save The Children has also been on board as a resources for helping local orgs. reopen childcare and education program facilities.
Of course, medical care is a major part of the relief process. International Relief Teams are providing "food, medicine, and relief supplies." Meanwhile, International Medical Corps is equipped with emergency medical assistance for the Florida Department of Health, as well as collaborating with North Caroline authorities to brace for potential needs.

Let's continue to keep everyone affected in our prayers.
