Newly launched 4Ys Foundation, the charitable arm of itelbpo, is looking to raise US100,000 to assist Hurricane Dorian victims in The Bahamas.
The foundation has already raised US$60,000 to assist the victims, which include staff members.
Itelbpo Chairman Yoni Epstein made the disclosure about the US$100,000 target Saturday (Sept 14), during the inaugural itelFest in Kingston.
“One hundred and sixty-eight employees made it through with varying degrees of loss from Hurricane Dorian and immediately we established through the foundation… our GoFundMe account and have raised US$20,000. Through the sale of T-shirts, we’ve raised another US$5000,” Epstein added.
He said that itelbpo pledged US$20,000 and another foundation, CB Facie, has committed US$15,000.
He said the foundation will travel to The Bahamas to make an assessment of what further assistance it can provide.
