The crew of M/Y Dorothea III are known for their charity work. They are fresh off a stop to deliver water, food and supplies in Turks & Caicos after the hurricanes this summer. And they will be at it again after a shipyard period.

Next, the itinerary has them on their way to Central America with what they hope are tons of school supplies to donate to children in need.

“Our goal is to collect 10,000 pounds to load onto the boat and stop along the way in small village towns to bring much needed help to these children,” Chief Stew Bri McCurdy said.

Although the yacht is not in the show, Capt. John Crupi is scheduled to speak at “A United Approach to the Caribbean Crisis” with Superyacht Aid Coalition and YachtAid Global. The event features Dominica’s Honorable Dr. John Collin McIntyre, Acting Prime Minister of Dominica as well as Minister for Planning, Economic Development and Investment to address hurricane relief needed in the Eastern Caribbean and takes place at USSA American Pavilion, Yellow Zone at Bahia Mar on Wednesday, 2 pm.

Meanwhile, find the yacht’s donation box in The Oasis crew lounge during the show for items such as books, pens, paper, colored pencils, notebooks, calculators and English/Spanish dictionaries. Another donation box is at the security gate at Derecktor in Dania Beach, Florida, which is located near the Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

The crew will take donations until their scheduled departure in late December or early next year. To donate money, visit the crew’s crowd funding site, or contact brimccurdy@gmail.com for details.
