Dear Friends of the Fly,
Thank you so much for the outpouring of support you’ve shown us since Hurricane Dorian. We’ve received several questions from concerned guests and friends about various topics and thought we’d take the opportunity to address some of them here.
We are very fortunate that all of our employees as well as their families have been accounted for. Right now, helping them get settled and see a path to move forward is our biggest concern.
We are also spending our time supporting the relief efforts of the responders and community volunteers working around the clock, turning our kitchen into a place where they can come to get some food as they work to get Hope Town to a place where we can begin to rebuild.
It’s our goal to do all that we can to rebuild Firefly Sunset Resort and begin to welcome guests again by next spring or summer. Still, the dust hasn’t quite settled enough yet to confirm this timeline is even possible.
For those of you who had plans to stay with us before then, we are more than happy to refund you as soon as we are able to do so. However, communication is still limited on the island and we are currently unable to access or use any of our reservation systems. Your patience is appreciated immensely during this difficult time. As soon as we are able, we will reach out to you directly to process your refund.
If you’re interested in supporting relief efforts benefitting our friends, family, and neighbors here in Hope Town, please consider these Firefly approved donation sites:
- Carolina Coastal Community Hurricane Relief Fund www.3chrfund.com which is a non-profit and all funds are 100% tax deductible. This fund helps relocate refugees and rebuild Hope Town.
- This Go Fund Me is for Bahamian families that are being temporarily relocated to the Tri-County area. We are hosting a family ourselves that are set to arrive next week. They will be here for 3-6 months until their homes can be rebuilt. https://www.gofundme.com/f/temporary-bahamian-refugee-relief?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
- We will also be opening an online shop for t-shirts and hats very soon so we can ship anywhere!
If you are in the Charleston area, stay tuned to our social media pages for information on future drop off locations as more trips down to Hope Town are scheduled.
