H&M Donates $200,000 To San Jorge Children's Foundation

In anticipation of the June 7th reopening of its location at The Mall of San Juan, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, H&M supported the local community through San Jorge Children’s Foundation. H&M first partnered with nonprofit GLAM4GOOD and donated over 2,000 articles of clothing for a free pop up shop held at San Jorge Children’s Hospital on May 23rd for patients and their families, as well as doctors and nurses of the hospital. Building upon this initial outreach, sale proceeds from both Puerto Rican H&M locations during June 7th -10th were donated to San Jorge Children’s Foundation, amounting to a donation of $200,000.

“We are so thrilled to help the local community in Puerto Rico with this donation to San Jorge Children’s Foundation,” said Daniel Kulle, North American President of H&M. “We are also happy to be reopening our first location on the island for our customers and employees.”

H&M opened its first location in Puerto Rico at The Mall of San Juan on June 9th, 2016 and its second location at Plaza del Sol in Bayamón on September 1st of the same year. The company currently employs approximately 50 people on the island of Puerto Rico and is proud to support the local community.
