Monday 2 October 2017 | 09:00 CET | News

Verizon said it will be quintupling its support for the residents of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands to a total of USD 5 Million, taking into account the magnitude of recovery and relief efforts. The organisations to receive the money will be announced at a later time. 

The company previously announced a USD 1 Million pledge to fund Hurricane Maria relief efforts. Those funds are supporting immediate relief efforts of the American Red Cross and World Vision.

"We have a strong connection to Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands through our customers and employees," McAdam said. "And while we don't offer direct service to the Caribbean, we are working with federal agencies and our roaming partners to provide additional assistance during this crisis."
