Happy New Year

By Meaghan Enright

As 2021 comes to an end, I find myself filled with gratitude for our team, our supporters, and our partners.

Our team accomplished so much this year. We helped the VI Department of Health with community vaccinations, VITEMA with sandbag distribution for the island’s seniors, and many other departments and private organizations on projects great and small. I feel fortunate to work alongside such a hardworking, dedicated group of individuals.

Our donors were more generous than ever in 2021, especially our monthly donors. I am continuously humbled by the kindness you show and the trust that you place in us. Your kindness makes our impact possible.  

Additionally, we were fortunate to have strong community partners who assisted us with fundraising. I’d like to especially thank St. John Hardware, St. John Brewers and High Tide. With their help we’ve been able to continue repairing and rebuilding homes, care for the island’s seniors, and train our team to be better first responders.

In 2022, our commitment to housing recovery will continue with the expansion of the Resilient Housing Initiative (RHI). The program will include more clients for small repairs and even more full rebuilds. We are also welcoming new additions to our management team and to our Board of Directors. I know that they will help us grow even stronger in the years to come.

From all of us at Love City Strong, Happy New Year!
