Today, Indmar Marine Engines responded to a letter from Contender Boats, Maverick Boat Group and the NMMA that urged the marine industry to come together in support of our neighbors and friends. The letter encouraged the marine industry to contribute in efforts to reach a minimum combined donation of $250,000 for relief efforts.
Indmar joined the marine industry by donating directly to the group that is doing work on the ground in the Bahamas, the Third Wave Volunteers.
Third Wave is a registered 501c3. They have deployed medical personnel and supplies via boat to the Abacos and have a C130 transport plane going back and forth from Miami with supplies. Supplies they are in need of at this point are tents for people to sleep in, cleaning supplies, chainsaws and clearing equipment, work gloves and generators. Commissioner Russell has assisted with securing a warehouse in Wynwood to collect supplies and they are receiving assistance at the Opa Locka airport as well. There is also a great need for monetary donations.
