The Masonic Service Association Disaster Relief Fund has issued an appeal on behalf of the Grand Lodges of England, Scotland, and Ireland for the benefit of the members and people of the Bahamas –

The Bahamas have experienced an unprecedented amount of damage and destruction due to the two days that Hurricane Dorian battered the islands. While food, drinking water, and supplies are needed, the best way to assist them now is through your monetary donation. Donations can be made online at When remitting by check, please mark clearly which disaster appeal you wish the funds to go.

The Masonic Service Association is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and as such can receive tax deductible donations. MSA sends the complete amount of every donation to the Masonic Service Association Disaster Relief Fund to the intended recipient. It takes nothing, not a penny nor a stamp, for its administration of the fundraising effort. When giving to the Masonic Service Association Disaster Relief Fund you can be assured that the entire amount of your donation will go to the relief of those distressed by the disaster.

Minnesota Masons were on the receiving end of a similar appeal twenty years ago when the flood waters of the Red River of the North ravaged the cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks and other nearby communities. Now it is our turn to pay it back just a bit.
