John Harper, president and branch manager of Marshall & Sterling St. Croix; Marissa Small, loss control specialist at Theodore Tunic & Co; Lionel Downer from Baker Magras & Associates; Monica Robinson, senior client service representative; and Yamiris Martinez have presented a $10,000 donation to Lutheran Social Services of the VI as a relief to the agency during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The donation came from a fund out of the Marshall & Sterling Corporate Office, Theodore Tunic & Co and Baker Magras & Associates, and it will help cover some of LSSVI’s COVID-19 expenses across its 11 program sites. The donation was part of the companies’ commitment to the community, and both Marshall & Sterling and Theodore Tunic & Co have supported LSSVI programs in different ways over the years. Recently, Theodore Tunic donated $25,000 towards a new community center for low-income seniors at Ebenezer Gardens, LSSVI’s independent living complex on St. Thomas. Marshall & Sterling has been a major sponsor of the Queen Louise Home for Children Golf Tournament for over 35 years.

Speaking at the presentation, LSSVI Chief Executive Officer Junia John-Straker expressed gratitude for the donation and the outreach, especially during these tough times. “With so many of the seniors and vulnerable residents at our facilities in the high-risk category, it has been critical to ensure we have adequate staff and enough health and safety supplies to keep everyone safe.”

Everyone at Lutheran Social Services is grateful for the support of these corporate citizens, and it extends thanks to them for coming alongside to assist the most vulnerable in our community.
