RJ Young CEO watches as friends help load his plane with supplies for Hurricane Dorian survivors.

“I’ve traveled to the Bahamas for years and I wanted to do what I could for the people affected by this tragic event,” said Chip Crunk.

On September 6 and 7, RJ Young’s President and CEO, Chip Crunk, flew his private plane to Treasure Cay on Abaco Island to deliver much needed supplies to the stricken island. During his many trips back to the states he also transported hurricane Dorian survivors.

Chip loaded his plane in Nashville, Tennessee with supplies from Walmart including hot plates, chairs, cords, rope, chainsaws, water, blankets, and more. To make room for supplies he removed seats from the plane which allowed him to carry survivors to Palm Beach, Florida.

The United Nations reported Saturday that more than 70,000 residents in the Bahamas had lost their homes. Hurricane Dorian damaged or destroyed the majority of homes and businesses on Treasure Cay and knocked out all utilities.

“I’ve traveled to the Bahamas for years and I wanted to do what I could for the people affected by this tragic event,” said Chip Crunk.
