1. Community
  2. Charitable Giving

At Jabil, we value making investments in the communities where we operate. Each Jabil site supports local non-profit organizations through a variety of in-kind, corporate and personal giving. Some sites also match employee donations to amplify Jabil’s impact.

CASE STUDY

Delivering Emergency Supplies to Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico was devastated in September 2017 when Hurricane Maria tore through the Caribbean island. Thousands of Puerto Ricans and hundreds of Jabil Nypro employees were left with limited access to safe water, medication, and electricity.

In a matter of days, Jabil employees in Florida collected donated emergency supplies and loaded them into Jabil’s corporate plane headed to Puerto Rico, where they were distributed not only to Jabil employees but also to hospitals and organizations in the local community. In the months following the storm, Jabil partnered with organizations to continue to collect donations. In total, Jabil delivered approximately:

  • 149,100 pounds of water, juice, other drinks and non-perishable food; 
  • 34,800 pounds of supplies, including 75 generators, 13,000 batteries, water purification systems, tarps, extension cords, fans, medicine, baby diapers, clothing, sleeping bags, air mattresses, and tents; 
  • 3,000 pounds of essential satellite equipment for a customer; and 
  • 24,200 pounds of medical supplies donated by All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Doctors of University of South Florida Health and New York University School of Medicine.

Providing Free Medical Care to Community Members in Chihuahua

Jabil Chihuahua runs a Family Medical Care Service program that provides Jabil employees and their families with medical care from a doctor and nurse on-site at Jabil. Throughout the year, the medical clinic also supports Jabil Chihuahua's Social Responsibility events including blood donation campaigns, site visits to local orphanages and other community events.

In Fiscal 2017, Jabil Chihuahua hosted a Health Fair that was open to the public and free of charge. Jabil provided over 500 medical check-ups to local community members.

During the event, Jabil staff also met Isabelle Moloy, a young woman from the community who was having difficulty obtaining a new leg prosthesis. Jabil responded quickly and was able to donate the funds necessary to help Isabelle secure a new leg prosthesis.

   

Through the Jabil Chihuahua Family Medical Care Service, people in the community can receive free eye exams.
