And for the of you who would like to purchase a t-shirt to support rebuilding efforts, Jolly Dog has created one. Jolly Dog has been a staple on St. John for more than 20 years. Here is what owner Jeff Donnelly had to say:
We want to give proceeds from the sale of the shirt to three of our favorite charities: Coral Bay Community Council, St. John Animal Care Center, and St. John Rescue.
Sale of the shirt will also benefit Jolly Dog as we took a massive hit at the stores and suffered damage and looting…and will need to rebuild.
The shirts are priced at $25.00 plus $5.95 shipping. We priced the shirt to allow our margins and raise money for charity at the same time. We will be shipping from the States as soon as possible, as no realistic shipping option exists here on St. John as you well know!
