Lonnie Willis: How we came to be…
The St. John Community Foundation was
formed in 1989, to help St. John
recover from the massive destruction
caused by Hurricane Hugo. It was a
community commitment toward a
common goal of serving the needs of
the island’s residents that started with
a core group of St. John business
owners and concerned citizens.
