JPMorgan Chase Responds to the Devastation of Hurricane Michael
Hurricane Michael roared quickly through the southeast United States Wednesday, destroying homes and businesses and leaving hundreds of thousands of people without power.
The storm made landfall only weeks after Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas.
To help with relief efforts, JPMorgan Chase is giving $500,000 to the American Red Cross and working to identify volunteer opportunities for local employees. The company is also refunding some fees for affected customers across businesses.
“All of our employees in the impacted areas are safe, but we know that many of our customers and communities face a long road to recovery,” said Mel Martinez, chairman of the southeast U.S. and Latin America.
“We will continue to support our colleagues, customers and communities as they get back on their feet.”
