Giving Back to the Community is what it’s all about in paradise

Written by Coconut Post

Whether you’re in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands as a visitor, a local — or always in spirit — Coconut Post keeps you posted on fun-filled news ’n views. Published monthly by Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas, we’re focused on sharing our people, places, and fun things happening in paradise.

Community spirit runs deep in the Virgin Islands. Many local businesses support non-profit organizations and events — not only with monetary and in-kind product donations but hands-on help, as well.

Working behind the scenes, talented multi-taskers support a variety of important causes ranging from health care to education, animal services, and beach cleanups. 

The staff and management of USVI Coca Cola participate in good causes throughout the year including coastal cleanups. Left to right: Hugo Torres, Delvin Duggins, Angel Gonzalez, Kirah Moolenaar, Volcine Richardson, and Alberto Baco.

The enthusiastic team makes a visual splash, arriving in bright red logo shirts, setting up welcome tents, and stocking ice-filled barrels with cases of complimentary beverages including Powerade sports drinks, Dasani purified water and Glaceau Smartwater.

At a cleanup event on Brewers Beach, General Manager Hugo Torres took a moment to comment, “Everyone at Coca Cola sincerely wants to help. We’ve got to keep our islands clean.” True to his word, in addition to providing ice-cold refreshments, Torres and his team made multiple trips to the coastline and back for several hours, removing debris along the way. 

Whether you are on St. Thomas for a day, a week, or a lifetime, please do your part to beautify our islands — and support the businesses that reflect the best of our community spirit.
