Joining together for Covid relief!
Wow - 2020 has not been what I expected it to be! I know this rings true for most people. Despite the health and economic challenges that our community has faced, I am humbled by the outpouring of assistance and positivity from our PAVI supporters and patients.
Recently, PAVI was able to partner with the St. Thomas Recovery Team and Chelsea Drug Store to provide medical supplies to USVI residents in Covid-positive households! A huge thank you to Chelsea Drug Store for always helping PAVI advocate for our patients and those in need in the USVI.

While we continue to serve our patients, we continue to grow. Due to Covid's impact on the local economy, we are receiving record numbers of referrals for assistance. Many of these patients had just returned to work at the beginning of the year to the resorts that finally reopened after the storms. They have now been furloughed again and need help. PAVI will continue to support them during this trying time.
On July 15 PAVI will participate in GlobalGiving's Bonus Day! For all donations greater than $100, PAVI will receive a percentage match! This is such a great opportunity and PAVI could earn up to an additional $3,000 in matching funds! We would love for you to participate! An email reminder will also go out that morning.
As always, thank you for supporting PAVI. Our organization and patients appreciate all you do for them. Thank you for believing in this community!
