Support for community organizations that directly help those affected by Fiona

True to the motto of our recent campaign Together Nothing Can Stop Us, we activated the FB account Huracán Fiona #0108004226 and the pATH /FirstBankFIONA through ATH Móvil to make it easier for you to contribute to non-profit organizations that are actively offering direct aid in the most affected municipalities of Puerto Rico due to Hurricane Fiona, to whom we have already donated some $300,000. #TheHumanSideOfBankin
