Evertec Announces Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts
Evertec, Inc. (“EVERTEC” or the “Company”) today announced that the
Company is participating in three different programs to aid the victims
of Hurricane Irma in Puerto Rico.
In cooperation with the Government of Puerto Rico, the First Lady
Beatriz Rosselló and several of the largest companies in the
commonwealth, Evertec has joined “United for Puerto Rico – Together
Changing Trajectories”. The mission of the group is to raise money to
aid the victims of Hurricane Irma on the island. As part of this
initiative, Evertec has pledged to contribute $100,000 and in addition,
Evertec’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Mac Schuessler, has
joined the Executive Committee that will help manage the allocation of
the relief funds.
Evertec and ATH have also established its #apoyoatodahora initiative.
For every “like” to an Evertec or ATH post on their social media
outlets, the Company will donate one dollar to Hurricane Irma disaster
relief in Puerto Rico, up to $50,000.
Finally, with the support of its employees, Evertec has also joined
Green Culebra, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the community and
children of Culebra, Puerto Rico. Evertec has set up multiple collection
stations at its corporate offices to collect products and food that will
be delivered to 150 families in Culebra who suffered the effects of Irma.
“Our thoughts and concerns are with all those impacted by this storm”
said Mac Schuessler, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We will
continue to assist the communities and families who experienced the
damaging effects of Hurricane Irma in Puerto Rico.”
