Beyond the Beach: Clean Up Series

This weekend in celebration of Earth Day, Unified Events hosted the initial Beyond the Beach: Clean Up, a series of scheduled community clean ups to combat pollution in low lying areas where water run off collects.

Our starting team of four volunteers kicked off the clean up a little after 9AM within the park surrounding the Bandstand in Road Town. Many passing by offered helping hands as we moved down Main Street towards the battered 3-story Bargain Center building. Teams split off and were able to collect waste from the playground of Elmore Stoutt High School, as well as the ball field where large piles of hurricane debris sit waiting for removal. After breaking for lunch all ten volunteers finished off a little after 1PM with over 15-50g bags of waste collected.

Many thanks to all the Earth Angels that participated and for the wonderful lunch from ‘Bazz Natural Juices! As well as all the background helpers who stopped by to show their support and offered donations!

Please reach out for further details as we host our next Beyond the Beach: Clean Up on May 20th in TRELLIS BAY!

Replanting Project – BirdsCaribbean

As we head into a fresh spring season full of renewal and regrowth, Unified Events intends to work with the help of volunteers to replant many of the trees and vegetation loss after last years storms.

A dual effort to help many of the birds throughout the territory who were displaced from their homes after recent storms. Our mission to bring in 100+ trees, sourced within the Caribbean for replanting at a multitude of locations in the Virgin Islands.

Stay tuned for further details as we source volunteers to help with this wonderful opportunity.

Thankful to BirdsCaribbean for powering this uplifting program!!

BVI Hurricane Relief Distribution – Event Cancellation

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the events scheduled for Nov 11th and 12th were cancelled. We are no longer able to access the donated clothing and shoes received from multiple organizations to distribute for hurricane relief due to government politics. Even after the cancellation, our organization supported the Family Support Network with a $100 donation to assist those in need.

Unfortunately, items are STILL sitting at the Festival Grounds here in Tortola, BVI, as pictured below. Throughout the  community there are many with only a few clothing items and one pair of shoes, if any! The Virgin Islands Government arranged distribution process continues to fail us.

All who contacted us directly concerning upcoming events please stay tuned in December for further updates. We are currently sourcing partnerships to help those requiring clothing and shoes.

We are also hiring for those who are looking for work in the aftermath of Irma. Please reach out via eventsunified@gmail.com for further details. 

Raised $100 for BVI Red Cross

Catch us again on Saturday and Sunday, November 1th and 12th giving out donated relief clothing and shoes at Farmers Village, across from the Flow building. 10AM to 3PM! Portion of funds raised will be donated to the local organization, Family Support Network!

Community Member Clothing Drive

clothing-drive-flyer

Unified events will be hosting a clothing drive on Sunday, November 5th from 10am-7pm. We are asking for a $5 donation and a portion of the proceeds will go to the BVI Red Cross. This clothing drive is an effort to aid those in the community who have been affected by the recent natural disasters. Please come and take what you need. Items available will be clothing, shoes, and other relief items.

After Irma: Organized Clean Up

Unified Events has received a generous donation of 10 waste bins from Action Environmental in the NY/NJ area. Most thankful to their organization for supporting our clean up efforts here in the Eastern Caribbean.

Our focus now rests on securing shipping for these urgently needed waste bins to the territory. We have reached out to Waste Management, a US-based environmental management company, in an effort to secure a 20 ton dump truck to use for clean up efforts during the next six month period.

Stay tuned as we launch organized eco-friendly clean ups and clothing/shoe drives for the community members in the immediate area.

Our team at Unified Events sends blessings to all rebuilding after the multitude of natural disasters in the Caribbean/Latin America and worldwide.

We are stronger together and we will rebuild!
