St John Irma Relief Fund

St John USVI is currently being hit hard by hurricane Irma, Cat 5.  This fund will directly go to the people and community of St. John.  The creators of this fund are 4 residents of St. John who work in the boating industry.  The money raised will be used to deliver needed supplies, help rebuild damaged property and provide aid for displaced people and animals.

All funds will be withdrawn by Chris Shoupe into his personal account and distributed as described below.

We have been working hard to find the best place to put this money. We wanted to both help businesses that are in need and help the community as well as a few individuals that have had extreme loss. Individuals selected are long time St John inhabitants who have been a part of the community for many years and suffered substantial loss from the storms.
