For the past four months, I have received countless emails and messages asking about volunteer opportunities here on island. First off, I would like to thank all of you for wanting to help us. That truly means a lot. I’d also like to thank the St. John Community Foundation for all the work they have done on behalf of our community. Yesterday, they published the following volunteer opportunities. If you are able to help with one of the listed opportunities, please contact the business directly. Thank you everyone!
