There is nothing more that we can say collectively from the Virgin Island Relief Fund, than thank you! It is astounding to see the amount of support and live that has made its way to the Virgin Islands. Spirits are high this holiday season, and things are only getting better. Never had I though that we would be in the position we are in presently post category 5 hurricanes, but here we are!
As the islands and the amazing volunteers make progress every day, there is still much to be done. Thus far your generous donations have helped to:
-Collect and distribute over 700,000 LB’s of relief supplies!
-Provide power to the St. John School of the Arts, and St. John Christian Academy
-Set up distribution centers on St. Thomas, St. John, Tortola, and Jost Van Dyke
-Rebuild Pickles and attached shops in Paradise, Coral Bay St. John
-Rebuild Indigo Grill, Coral Bay, St. John
-Buy three large-scale generators to provide immediate power needs to key businesses in the USVI
-Purchase 8 125kw wall batteries, which will help pave the way to a greener future in the Virgin Islands. These will provide free renewable power for municipalities that can be enjoyed by the public.
-Provide hard to find medicine and medical supplies for the medical services in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands.
This is just the start of something amazing! We have big plans that lie ahead of us and more funding is needed. As we move into the holiday season, we hope that the masses will keep the Virgin Islands in their thoughts and prayers as we continue to deal with the aftermath of Irma and Maria.
We ask that anyone willing and able on this Giving Tuesday consider a donation to help us take the next steps in the arduous recovery process. Spread the love, share the word, and lets all continue to do our best to raise money and awareness for these beautiful islands.
Thank you again, from the entire community of the Virgin Islands.
Sincerely, Virgin Island Relief Fund
