Evertec responds to the devastation caused by hurricane Fiona

If anything has demonstrated Evertec's role as a corporate citizen, it is its immediate response to unexpected emergency situations that negatively affect our society. This is especially true when those situations happen in the countries where the company operates. One such example has been the various initiatives conducted in support of clients, collaborators, nonprofit organizations, and others affected by damages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which impacted the entire world, or the earthquakes and hurricanes in Puerto Rico.

This includes hurricanes like Fiona, which hit the Island of Enchantment in September of this year and after which a large portion of the western region is still struggling to recover. Aware of the impact, and as a demonstration of support toward the recovery efforts, Evertec in conjunction with ATH led an initiative where, from September 23 to October 7, Evertec matched each dollar donated through the “Donate” feature in the ATH Móvil application to 31 organizations that stood out for their work in helping those affected by the disaster. The maximum limit was set at $100,000 with a cap of $5,000 per organization, subject to the availability of funds.

According to Evertec President and CEO Mac Schuessler, “Hurricane Fiona inflicted hardship on Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, and our hearts go out to those affected. We remain deeply committed to the recovery and I am proud of our colleagues and their efforts to respond to these challenges.”
