From the dock, across the passerelle, down the port side of M/V True North, into the companionway and down the hold, up to 40 tons of supplies were passed for hurricane relief efforts on Sunday afternoon at Derecktor Shipyard in Dania, Florida.

More than 60 volunteers from a variety of businesses, non-profit organizations, as well as families and individuals worked together to fill the 110-foot vessel owned by Mission of Hope which will soon head to Abaco in The Bahamas to help after Hurricane Dorian.
