MIAMI BEACH, FL, September 08, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Following Hurricane Dorians historic and devastating impact to the Bahamas, Project Green 501c3 (ProjectGreenUSA.org) founders Kim Kreiss and Patrycja Towns along with leading members of the South Florida business and philanthropic communities today announced they have come together to create the Bahamian Relief Consortium as part of Mission Resolve (missionresolve.org). "We lost our own home during Hurricane Sandy so I have a big heart for all storm victims," says Kim Kreiss. "Hurricane Dorian has devastated the Bahamas and we will step in to help in any way we can as we did with Hurricane Irma," added Patrycja Towns.
The rapidly growing group already includes senior executives from Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, Resolve Marine Group, Entercom Communications, Celebration of the Sea Foundation, Broward Workshop, South Florida Chapter of Entrepreneur's Organization, The Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, Keys Strong, Gold Aviation, JetScape, Tropic Air, Premier Protection Insurance, Dimor Aero and Marine Connection, as well as representatives from numerous various state volunteer organizations.
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, which has operated round-trip cruises from the Port of Palm Beach to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island for the past decade, is known for stepping up to the plate during times of crisis. The company deployed Grand Celebration to St. Thomas in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, working alongside Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) to house more than 2,000 first responders for two months after the storm. Working together, Project Green, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line and Mission Resolve are engaged in daily direct communications with the Bahamian government – including Deputy Prime Minister Kevin Peter Turnquest – to determine the critical areas of need in order to serve as a liaison for those looking to assist in the Hurricane Dorian recovery effort.
In addition to monetary donations, which are now being accepted, items are being accepted at various drop-off points – including Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line's Riviera Beach warehouse:
• Canned goods
• Building supplies (roofing materials, tar paper, plywood, etc.)
• Hygiene products
• First Aid kits
• Mosquito repellent
• Chlorine tablets
• Pampers, baby wipes, and baby food

About Mission Resolve:
Mission Resolve Foundation was established through an innovative collaboration between Resolve Marine Group and The Celebration of the Sea Foundation. The initiative has begun with the introduction of the 216-foot HERV (Humanitarian & Environmental Response Vessel) "LANA ROSE" as a new category of vessel to serve as a global catalyst to engage, educate and inspire the public in best practices for humanitarian aid, civic engagement and the deployment of applied science. Mission Resolve was established to provide humanitarian relief and disaster preparedness training in addition to support for the deployment of actionable solutions to pressing global environmental challenges. The organization intends to begin adding a fleet of additional vessels in other areas of the world in order to serve multiple countries simultaneously on an international basis.
