Another container of essentials is on its way to the Bahamas.

West Palm Beach-based Eagles Wings Foundation has collected more than $200,000 worth of food water and other supplies.

Thursday the organization accepted pallet after pallet from the Church of Latter Day Saints. 

The donations will help Bahamians recovering from Hurricane Matthew.

"They’ve moved from the emergency room to the recovery ward, but what happens after a hurricane is a lot of places down there have well water, so a lot of the surge can come in and contaminate their wells. So we're just trying to help out improve some quality of life stuff and get them back to normal,” said Eagles Wings Foundation spokesman Matt Campbell.

Eagles Wings Foundation partners with Pathfinders Task Force to help governments plan and respond to disasters.
