Bolongo Bay Staff Irma/Maria Fund

As many of you are aware, the U.S. Virgin Islands were heavily impacted by Hurricane Irma, and then two weeks later, Hurricane Maria.

Many of the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort employees have been affected by these two storms in a multitiude of ways, including property damages and the destruction of homes. Some have been faced with difficult decisions of leaving island, or to move in with family. 

Article: New York Times: In the US Virgin Islands, Hurricane Maria drowned what Hurricane Irma didn't destroy. 

We are looking for your support during this very difficult time.  The purpose of this fund is to provide assistance to staff members who are facing difficult times in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma & Maria. 

100% of the money from this fundraiser will go back to helping our staff. 

Message from the Management of the hotel:

Since the day we first opened our doors over 40 years ago, we've said that Bolongo Bay is more about who we are than what we are.  Out staff, through their daily embodiment of positivity, service, love and happiness, has always created a unique human experience. Now, we're giving past guests a chance to help the amazing people who made their vacations so memorable.

Your messages and emails have been a welcoming warmth for all of us. So many of you have asked what is needed most and what can you do to help. It's messages like those that show us how truly special our staff has been to our guests over the years.  

In this tough time, we need your support.

All funds will go to the employees of Bolongo Bay that were effected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. 

Any help to give, share, and make this happen would be greatly appreciated. We have always said Bolongo Bay hasthe best guests and you all never cease to amaze us.

From the bottoms of our hearts we all thank you.

Sincerely,

Bolongo Bay Beach Resort
