In the wake of the devastating hurricanes that ripped through the U.S. Virgin Islands, Kenny Chesney is continuing his work to help out the area. The 49-year-old singer has released an update about the work his foundation, Love for Love City, is doing and continues to do.
When Chesney, a resident of the U.S. Virgin Islands, saw the devastation that Hurricane Irma caused, even destroying his own home, he jumped into action wanting to help.
In response, Chesney created Love for Love City Foundation. The foundation was started to identify pressing local needs, create opportunities for companies to donate supplies, food, physical goods or transport and people to contribute to the ongoing rebuilding of the islands.
The “American Kids” singer posted an update video on his Facebook page, sharing all the good being done by the foundation, but stressing that “friends and family in the islands are still in emergency need of supplies.”
Posting to Facebook, Chesney wrote “An update on the #LoveForLoveCity Foundation. In the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, we’ve been working around the clock to get much needed supplies and relief to the islands. There are still so many people in dire need of our help. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support, your donations and for spreading the word. Love ya. #spreadthelove #hurricanerelief.”
