USVI is home to many of the people we love and care for. It's 100,000 residents are in imminent danger, facing a powerful Category 5 Hurricane which will arrive on island Wednesday September 6th. Hurricane Irma will pass within 35 miles of the island of St Thomas with sustained winds of 175mph.
The islands of USVI and their residents will face tremendous hardship both during the storm and after. The island infrastructure will be incredibly strained, with loss of power, water, and communications.
We are organizing an effort to raise donations for much needed supplies such as batteries, generators, tarps, and toiletries which will be in high demand after the storm passes. Fema will be on hand with Food and Water.
We would like to raise enough money to fill a shipping container with supplies and send it to the Virgin Islands when the ports open!
