Officials say you can also help by booking a vacation to the 26 islands in the Bahamas that were not impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
"If you have a vacation planned, don't cancel, unless it was planned to Abaco or Grand Bahamas. Don't cancel ... we need the support of our economic engine which is tourism," said Astra Armbrister-Rolle, with Bahamas Consulate General Atlanta.
