The V.I. Dept. of Education has issued a statement expressing deep gratitude towards the Tim Duncan Foundation and ViVid Streaming for their recent contributions of water cooler dispensers, 5-gallon water jugs, and industrial copiers to all public schools across St. Croix.

The initiative has equipped a wide range of educational institutions, including PreK-6, PreK-8, Junior High, High Schools, Career Tech, and Adult Education centers, with these essential supplies.

The effort is being led by Rashidi Clenance and supported by various partners, including St. Croix Business Machines and Copy Center and the Virgin Islands National Guard, who contributed recycled 5-gallon water jugs. 

Mr. Clenance, known for his philanthropic work and affiliation with the Tim Duncan Foundation and ViVid Streaming, has indicated that this donation is the first in a series of upcoming events and promotions designed to support and uplift students. In a notable upcoming initiative, 500 students from both districts will be sponsored to attend the Bob Marley biopic, aligning with the relaunch of the Higher-Level High School radio program, a student-operated initiative broadcasting from ViVid Streaming studios on both St. Thomas and St. Croix.

Further engaging the educational community, ViVid Streaming will also offer teachers and students a chance to win a trip to Disney World/Universal Studios in a raffle during The Good Mahnin Show's SWAGG CALL segment. Last year, Wendy Wynter, a 20-year veteran teacher from Lew Muckle Elementary School, won a trip to Orlando, Florida.
