I'm raising money to benefit Gifft Hill School and any donation will help make an impact. 
I’m raising money to repair the field, to repair fencing,purchase CCTV cameras and new soccer goals all destroyed by vandals
The field serves all of the residents and schools on STJ
This happened last night! Someone smashed through one gate to the field, tried to drive out through the other one, smashed one of the soccer nets that we had just replaced post storm to pieces, and destroyed the surface by doing donuts!! This is the only field on St. John. It is used by the children of our island who are our students as well as students at JESS and Christian Academy, and open to anyone that wants to use it. On any given evening or weekend there are people playing soccer, ultimate frisbee or baseball. The complete lack of respect for everyone in the community who uses the space is heartbreaking! If anyone knows who did this, please go to the police! This is not who we are as a community!
