Intel Employee Service Corps in Puerto Rico
In 2017, a category 5 hurricane struck Puerto Rico with sustained winds of 175 mph. One of the 10 most intense Atlantic hurricanes on record, it caused USD 103 billion in damage to property and infrastructure and resulted in 4600 deaths. As part of the rebuilding effort, Intel partnered with World Wide Technology, Camera Mundi, the governor, and the CIO of Puerto Rico to aid schools in Puerto Rico. Intel employees organized, hosting a STEM hackathon, and planned deployment to 30 schools. USD 2.5 million in equipment and services was donated, including 1000 Intel® NUC kits, and 15,000 students were reached.
