Home > Storm Updates > Relief Efforts in Full Swing

Good Afternoon Friends,

We wanted to take a moment to update you on our current efforts to provide relief to the island communities of St Thomas and St John. The US Virgin Islands were devastated last week by Hurricane Irma, which made landfall on both islands as a Category 5 Storm. As of this morning we have been flooded with responses from around the country asking how people can help the islands!

We have secured a staging area for Amazon deliveries in Fajardo, Puerto Rico to all for the items to reach the community in a faster and more efficient method! The great news is, Amazon Prime offers free standard shipping allowing us to divert valuable resources to other needs, and allowing Amazon to focus on the logistics. We already have a small fleet of private boats standing by to shuttle the supplies to the islands!

Here is just a small part of the donations that have been shipped, but please understand this we are desperate for more supplies, there is a clear and present need for food, and basic necessities!

    Just had to tell you that it was a brilliant idea to create an Amazon wish list & have them ship directly to a drop off site. Too often people don’t know what to send & this saves you the time of having to purchase items on your own. This is the first time I’ve seen this. I’m amazed at how quickly you were able to start helping. It’s great to see to see people taking action for such a dire situation & to do it so effectively & efficiently.
