St. Croix Foundation Starts Frederiksted Cleanup Program

The St. Croix Foundation in partnership with Ten Thousand Helpers is launching a program in Frederiksted will help keep the west side city clean and provide funds for some of the island’s less fortunate at the same time.

The Foundation will provide funds to the private, non-profit group Ten Thousand Helpers for a clean-up program for the town and the group’s clients will help keep Frederiksted litter free and earn a stipend at the same time.

Ten Thousand Helpers of St. Croix serves the homeless on the island and the mentally ill across the territory (it operates Rainbow House, a transitional residential facility in Frederiksted, which houses as many as 10 residents).

The program was designed by the St. Croix Foundation and funding will come from the Waste Management Authority.

“Town revitalization and upkeep are among our highest priorities," foundation president Roger Dewey said. "Christiansted and Frederiksted are the jewels of the Caribbean, and we must do all in our power to bring them back. We cannot have a healthy St. Croix without a healthy Christiansted and Frederiksted.”

Pat Saunders, director of Ten Thousand Helpers said the group is delighted to undertake the task and contribute to Frederiksted.

"The program provides a valuable service to the community and the partnership allows our clients to give back,” he said. “Further, it demonstrates the capabilities of our residents."

The foundation plans to introduce the program in Christiansted, with Catholic Charities as its partner.

Further information can be obtained by calling Roger Dewey at the St. Croix Foundation – 773-9898.
