Anonymous Man Buys Over 100 Generators To Send To Hurricane Dorian Victims

Usually when you see a headline including the words “Florida Man,” you prepare for some wacky story involving fire or competitive eating or wrestling sea creatures while on drugs.

But one Florida man is making news for a really good deed: buying over 100 generators and food to send to people who need them in the Bahamas.

Jacksonsville resident Alec Sprague told News4Jax that he was in Costco purchasing a generator when he saw a man purchasing the generators.

“Was just in Cosco off Collins getting a generator (at $450 each) and this guy right here is purchasing over 100 generators and food to send to the Bahamas,” Sprague posted on Facebook.

Sprague’s post was shared 17,000 times in three hours.

The man purchasing the supplies does not want to be named. “It’s important that we help each other out. It’s better than just sitting there,” he said. “You see a need and you fill it.”

The generators and supplies will be driven to Stuart, Florida, where the man has a storage facility set up so that the items can be then transported to the Bahamas by boat. Errol Thurston, who is a boat captain and local Bahamian, will then bring the items to the Bahamas. He has a network of friends and fellow boaters who are helping. The anonymous donor and Thurston have been good friends for years and met in the Bahamas.

“We are trying to book a slot on a container ship that regularly services the Abacos and Grand Bahama,” Thurston told CNN.

“The guys are doing everything in their power to get us in a slot there. They know the desperation, the people really need these items.”

Thurston and his wife Mercedes have been integral in planning and collecting items such as food, water, medicine, and clothing for people who have been affected by Hurricane Dorian, which slammed areas of the Bahamas and caused incredible damage.

“They are the strongest people I’ve ever met in my life. They have the biggest hearts,” Mercedes said. “I feel like it’s our duty to step up and help them get back on their feet they will rebuild.”
