In the aftermath of two Category 5 Hurricanes, many of us asked the same question, how can we help? The US Virgin Islands were devastated, basic human needs of food, water, and shelter were scarce. Despite the destruction, small groups of people began to rise to the surface offering assistance where they could! Some of you have donated money, others donated items from our Amazon Wish List, helping to fill the shipping containers full of much needed basic supplies! Other’s still assisted with on the ground distribution!
We still need more help! The first of our containers have arrived on St Thomas! Two 40′ containers full of supplies, they have been recieved and unloaded by the amazing team at the Family Resource Center, and starting today, they are being distributed to those in need! But there is more to come, we have many more donations awaiting shipment. Estimates are as high as 30 additional containers, each costing $3-4,000 to ship. We still have immediate needs on the Wishlist, food, shelter, generators, and tarps remain at the top of these lists.
