ST. CROIX FOUNDATION ON-LINE HAILED

The St. Croix Foundation for Community Development, which recently launched its own web site and online newsletter, received congratulations on the move Wednesday from Delegate Donna M. Christian-Christensen.
The new web site and the newsletter, The Vanguard, are supported by the onepaper platform, where The Source newspapers also are found. The not-for-profit agency's web site is www.onepaper.com/stcroixfoundation.
The foundation was recently designated as the site of the first Women's Business Center in the territory, one of about 70 in the nation. It will use its web presence to increase its visibility and to inform residents of its expanding role in the community, according to executive director Roger Dewey.
Christensen commended the foundation, begun in 1991 by the late St. Croix insurance executive Philip Gerard, for its growing outreach. The agency, which made headlines recently when it purchased a number of derelict Times Square properties with plans to restore them, has had "a tremendous impact on St. Croix and is now in a position to benefit all Virgin Islanders," she said.
"Having worked with this organization on many issues," the delegate said, "I am very pleased to welcome them as our newest on-line resource and am happy to provide my congressional web site (www.house.gov/christian-christensen) as a link."
