As part of its commitment to the community, AIG Puerto Rico (American International Group) joined the organization Jóvenes de Puerto Rico en Riesgo, Inc. (JPRR), to rehabilitate several spaces at the José Santos Quiñones Middle School, in Canóvanas, where they offer school dropout and delinquency prevention services.
As part of the initiative, AIG, now celebrating 100 years as the world leader in property and contingent insurance, donated $5,000 to the organization to restore the school’s library, including a roof treatment. Also, AIG volunteer employees participated in the cleanup and painting of the library, as well as the Study Room. The donation also included cash to cover expenses of JPRR and to buy equipment for its headquarters.
“AIG is committed with our community and especially with nonprofit organizations such as Jóvenes de Puerto Rico en Riesgo, whose mission is to develop prevention programs for youth at social risk,” said Agnes B. Suárez, president of AIG Puerto Rico.
Jóvenes de Puerto Rico en Riesgo, Inc.
