SSCA Needs Help With Book Delivery to Bahamas

The Seven Seas Cruising Association has collected twelve huge pallets of retired Math and Science Books, Workbooks, Dictionaries, etc. from their partner, Charlotte County Public Schools in Florida. The supplies range from Grades K thru 9th.

They are looking for cruisers traveling from Florida to the Bahamas to help them transport the books to the Bahamian schools.

They will be distributing to the following schools in the Exumas: Staniel Cay, Black Point, Little Farmers, Georgetown (3 Elementary Schools and 1 Middle School), Ragged Island and two Primary Schools in the Acklins. The majority of the boxes will be going to Georgetown (350 boxes) and Staniel Cay and Black Point (110 boxes).

The boxes are small (11L X 9W X 7D) or (14L X 9W X 7D) and can be easily placed in a dinghy. The average weight is 8 to 12 lbs.

Boxes can be picked up in October thru January in Ft. Pierce, Florida; Vero Beach Municipal Marina, Vero Beach, Florida; Punta Gorda, Florida; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; St. Petersburg, Florida and at the Melbourne Convention(GAM).

If you are able to help, please contact Bruce & Marilyn Conklin at < goldconk AT yahoo.com > or 772 - 559-1235. Include your boat length and your choice of islands and approximately how many boxes you might be able take.
