Good Night Friends,
Countless Amazon clicks, innumerable Facebook posts, and hour upon hour of working diligently at a computer, has begun to pay off!!! Today we shipped a much larger shipment of much needed relief supples to the residents of St Thomas and St John in the US Virgin Islands. Cut off from the mainland and readily accessible relief, the small Caribbean island group was devastated last week by Hurricane Irma, and now supplies are on their way there! Today’s efforts alone culminated in 25,000 lbs. of supplies!That’s 12.5 TONS!!!
Donations of goods continue to pour into our Philadelphia staging site, where news media has been onsite for live coverage of the efforts put forth by a small group of stateside VI residents, all working tirelessly for one cause, to not allow the US Virgin Islands to be forgotten in the wake of Hurricane Irma’s destructive forces!
We continue to request the shipment of supplies to our new staging area in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, where a team on the ground is waiting to load them on charter boats bound for the US Virgin Islands!
