Bo Collins Startup Renovatio PR Joins Relief NOW Efforts in Puerto Rico

December 1, 2017

Volunteers from Renovatio PR, a Puerto Rico-based fintech incubator, joined Relief NOW over the Thanksgiving holiday to provide food and other needed supplies to Puerto Rican residents still suffering in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

"There are still many communities that have not been fully served by other relief organizations," said Adriana Ramos, a Renovatio PR analyst who currently devotes all of her time to Renovatio PR's Puerto Rico relief efforts as part of her company's commitment to the island. "Working with Ginny Pinero-Pares and the other Relief NOW volunteers is a great opportunity to make a meaningful impact on real people's lives at a time when it is still badly needed."

Relief NOW is a not-for-profit organization founded by Ryan Fitzmorris, whose childhood neighborhood in New Orleans was among the hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. Relief NOW has now completed four missions to Puerto Rico, providing food and supplies to over 10,000 people.

"We are committed to assisting Puerto Rico and Relief NOW has proven its effectiveness," said Bo Collins, Renovatio PR's Chief Executive Officer. "We look forward to further opportunities to assist as they continue to support communities in need."
