Employee Relief Fund Launched to Serve Hurricane Maria Victims
Hundreds of Jabil Nypro employees were severely impacted by Hurricane Maria, which overwhelmed Puerto Rico in September 2017. Many employees were left with limited access to safe water, medication and electricity, and some lost their entire homes.
Employees around the world immediately expressed an outpouring of support. To help coordinate their generosity and to plan for future giving needs, Jabil partnered with the Emergency Assistance Foundation to create the Jabil Employee Relief Fund. The not-for-profit empowers Jabil employees to make a tax-free donation that directly supports colleagues facing extreme hardships. To date, the fund has raised over US$150,000 through employee donations, with contributions and matching funds from Jabil Inc. and the Nypro Foundation.
