“We’re there to help people in their greatest time of need and I think this certainly is that kind of situation.”

Teams are making round trip flights from Florida to Treasure Cay, Bahamas and the crew in Cleveland is keeping in close contact.

“There’s nowhere for them to go, they’re out, exposed to the elements and at this point they’re just looking for someone to help them get to Nassau,” says Aitheras Aviation Group Vice President of Operations, Richard Newenhisen.

This volunteer mission needs financial help.  A GoFundMe account has been set up.
