We are VI Strong!

Stories of Hope, Heroes, and Helpers!

This is the story of how one local business owner helped fed a community!

In the wake of Hurricane Irma, St John Resident and owner of The Longboard, Clint Gaskins opened his heart and his kitchen to the residents and relief workers on St John!!

Today during our feeding at The Longboard a US Army solider asked me if St. John was always like this. I was confused and asked what he meant and he said “like how your community all comes together and helps each other” I told him how it’s a small island and how the love here is strong and he smiled and said :

“It’s truly amazing, I’ve been all over and I’ve kind of lost hope for the world but being here I can see hope again”
