Virgin Islands Native Sons Relief


On Wednesday, September 6, 2017 and Tuesday, September 19, 2017, the U.S. Virgin Islands suffered catastrophic damage in the St. Thomas / St. John district from Hurricane Irma and in the St. Croix district from Hurricane Maria.   Your donation will help a group of (7) young professional Virgin Islands native sons who are based on the US mainland, as we travel as a team to assist our families and friends clean-up and re-build.   

Much of the Virgin Islands territory is devastated and many businesses and homes in ruin.  Supplies are very limited and power will be out for several months.  While many relief efforts are underway, our mission will directly impact restoration efforts of our immediate family properties as well as bring necessary supplies for the greater community.

Funds will be used for airfare, transportation, ocean freight, equipment and construction tools such as chainsaws, portable generators, tie-down straps, rope, hammers, fasteners, and tool sets.  In addition, miscellaneous supplies will include first aid kits, garbage bags, water filters, toiletries, non-perishable food items, safety equipment, batteries, matches, insect repellent, solar lanterns, flashlights, rope, coolers, and cleaning supplies.

Our goal is to travel to the Virgin Islands at the end of  October and into November 2017.  Thank you in advance for your kind support to alleviate the financial burden of this unforeseen disaster, and helping to make our families whole again.  Together we can build a better Virgin Islands.
