Home > Fundraising > Urgent Island Needs, Order from Amazon!

Thank you for your continued support of our fundraising efforts! With the approaching storm, we are shifting to a longer term solution for logistics moving forward! The fine folks at Viking Freight in Miami, FL have agreed to stage for us at their freight forwarding warehouse, where they will unpack, palletize, load in shipping containers and move to Tropical Marine or Crowley to have transported directly to St Thomas. Once they reach St Thomas we have a dedicated team on the ground to move these items to a secure facility where they will be distributed to designated distribution sites staffed by Government Agencies on island.

We have worked long and hard to secure this connection for long term relief efforts and cannot thank Viking enough for their support on this! Having a staging site in south Florida allows us to receive palletized shipments from larger corporate donors, it also allows us to ship Amazon products which were not previously able to ship to Puerto Rico. These items include essentials such as Chainsaws and Generators!

    Can people send things to specific recipients through this shipment via Viking?

      No, I’m sorry we cannot.

    Can I send 11 items including a generator to myself via this method of shipping? I’m ordering them from Amazon. I live on St. Thomas. Please let me know. Thank you.

      No we are not capable of securing shipments to individuals at this point.
