Alpine Securities USVI Provides $7,500 Match for Harvest Festival & Pumpkin Patch Campaign

Alpine Securities

The Virgin Islands Justice Initiative is hosting the inaugural Harvest Festival & Pumpkin Patch from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct.  15, at Magens Bay. In conjunction with this event, the V.I. Justice Initiative is also engaging in an online crowdfunding fundraising campaign which can be found on this link:  https://chuffed.org/project/harvestfestival4vijustice

Alpine Securities has agreed to boost this fundraiser by offering to match community donations on the first $7,500 raised on the crowdfunding site. “Alpine Securities endeavors to invest in organizations and initiatives that match our philanthropic values, and have the most meaningful, positive, and sustainable impact on the Virgin Islands community,” said Vernon Araujo the director of philanthropy at Alpine Securities. “We are excited to support the VI Justice Initiative and the young people they provide services for.”

The Virgin Islands Justice Initiative is a nonprofit organization that provides free legal representation focused on economic and restorative justice.

Its inaugural Harvest Festival & Pumpkin Patch will weave traditional agricultural elements and new fall activities that are perfect for families with children. This event will take place in the space between Shed No. 4 and the arboretum, from the parking lot to the campground.

“This festival is an example of our organization’s commitment to provide a benefit to the community that we serve in all aspects of the work that we do. Instead of hosting a gala, our organization is putting on a free community event, which will also serve as a benefit. This event is intended to engage our community with fun, safe, kid-friendly activities that bring the entire family together. Funds will be raised primarily through event sponsors – allowing event-goers access to the event at no cost aside from the entrance fee for Magens Bay,” said Casey Payton, executive director of the Virgin Islands Justice Initiative.

“Our first initiative is a modest, but important, one. We are partnering with My Brother’s Workshop to provide expungement services to some of the young people in their program who need a clean record for employment purposes,” said Alex Golubitsky, Chairman of the Virgin Islands Justice Initiative Board of Directors.
