From early, Barbadians dropped off bottled water, canned items, sanitary napkins, toilet paper and more at the new headquarters in Warrens, St Michael.
The facility was buzzing with activity, as volunteers recorded items and prepared them to be taken by boat which will sail into both islands on Tuesday.
Director General of the Red Cross Edmund Bradshaw who was on hand directing the procedures, said he  was pleased with the outpouring from Barbadians.
“It’s been non-stop action all morning,” he said.
Bradshaw thanked the fisherfolk for assisting in the exercise during “their busy season” and noted the boats would be going into Soufriere and Castries on Tuesday and would be met by the Red Cross officials there.
Speaker of the House of Assembly Michael Carrington was among those assisting at the Warrens headquarters.
