Let’s join our hands for Haiti
We all feel the pain of our Haitian brothers and sisters, in the aftermath of the earthquake that ravaged the country on January 12.  That’s why Popular has decided to offer its network of branches throughout the island as collection centers and opened a special account for those of you who wish to make financial donations.

If you wish to donate cash, you can deposit your contribution in the account Ayuda a Hermanos Haiti, #030-695112 through TeleBanco, using your ATH® card, or your credit card (VISA, AMEX or MasterCard), or visiting any branch. Funds will be channeled to victims through the American Red Cross, Puerto Rico Chapter.

If you wish to donate essential items, all our branches will serve as collection centers from Thursday, January 14 through Thursday, January 21. The most urgent needs are:

  • Canned food that doesnot require cooking
  • Hygiene items
  • Diapers
  • First aid items
  • Baby formula
  • Powdered milk
  • Batteries
  • Flashlights

These items will be channeled through the Municipality of San Juan, which has made the arrangements to send them by air to Haiti.

Puerto Rico has a generous heart.  Let’s once again join our hands to help the people of Haiti.
