Hurricane Irma Relief Virgin Islands

(U. S. & British Virgin Islands)---New Jersey native and top Wall Street energy guru, Bill Perkins, 48, is showing his well known philanthropic side to the world, commandeering a crew of boats and planes into the Virgin Islands (USVI & BVI), his adopted homeland, to provide desperately needed supplies to the people there suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

For the past week, Perkins and his crew have been working non-stop to deliver on a promise he made to his neighbors, to help them rebound from the devastating hurricane.

In the immediate aftermath of Irma, Bill chartered a jet full of generators, chainsaws and critical need medical supplies.

Perkins was so fast acting he had to source these needs directly through personal contacts in the hospital, as there was no communication through the initial chaos.

Many times over, Perkins, a frequent guest on financial cable news, and most recently profiled in The Wall Street Journal, has shown his philanthropic stuff, starting not too many years ago with his own high school, St. Peter’s Prep, in Jersey City, New Jersey, where he helped to fund a new athletic center bearing his name.

He has a philosophy, “spend it all before you die,” and that’s what he’s been doing this past week, to the tune of well over six figures, and he’s still buying and delivering supplies, 24/7.

As part of the week-long relief effort, to date, Perkins has personally paid for multiple boat runs to the USVI and BVI with supplies, as well as his team coordinating logistics for his own chartered jets and those of many other EDC business owners.

He has also set up a distribution center‎ and delivered items to nursing homes, foster homes, veterinary clinics, and numerous other places in need within the Virgin Islands.

Perkins has provided direct cash relief to community leaders for them to distribute as they see fit to people who were already living paycheck to paycheck and are now unemployed.

He is currently processing a huge order of generators to be distributed within the neediest of communities and has even purchased all of the food to set up a‎ production line of sandwiches in his own home. Throughout this tireless effort, he has personally gone out into the communities to distribute food and find out what other needs there are.

Bill Perkins is a dynamic 48 year-old Wall Street whiz, considered the energy stocks guru of gurus--with his financial expertise par excellence, and world class designation as a poker player champ, too, he is in growing demand as a national media guest and speaker and is quickly growing his philanthropy: funding many projects, including various civil rights initiatives.
