Bringing the Gift of Shade 2018
For our 2018 Shade Project, we chose to support a special community, St. John in the US Virgin Islands. The island was one of many ravaged by Hurricane Irma on September 7th and then again two weeks later by Hurricane Maria. Both were Category 5 hurricanes, with Irma’s winds exceeding 185 mph with unheard of gusts of over 225 mph, making it one of the worst storms in history to hit the Caribbean basin. ShadeScapes donated 30 umbrellas to restaurants and schools on the island, and was able to provide another 20 umbrellas by donating 25% of all sales from our Gift of Shade offering in 2018 back to the project. Your purchase makes a difference to the people of St. John.
