UTC building community bridges


November 7, 2014:Movietowne, Port of Spain, came alive with the infectious joy of children from Sophia House and St. Jude’s Home for Girls, when staff from the Unit Trust Corporation’s One Woodbrook Place Investment Center took the time to accompany them to an evening at the movies.

As part of UTC’s focus on building lasting relationships in our communities, UTC staff ‎also brought smiles to the faces of children from the National Association for Downs Syndrome when they participated in various games, art and craft.

Michelle Harnarinesingh of the Human Resource Department stated, “I was moved by this experience and marveled at how inventive these kids were, it would be great to come here again to see the progress of the children.”

Team members from the Electronic Distribution Channels and the Document Management Unit also left a lasting impression at the St. Dominic’s Children’s Home, whom they chaperoned on a field trip to the Emperor Valley Zoo. UTC team member, Gail Jordan Jagassar and coordinator of the community outreach, said that right from the start it was learning experience.

“These outings help to broaden their life experiences and allow the children to accept people into their lives, said Sr. Arlene Greenidge of the St. Dominic’s Children’s Home, adding that the experience was a memorable one in that it allowed for positive interaction.

Such displays of selflessness are all part of the UTC’s focus to not only build relationships in the communities and to enrich people’s lives in the process but to bring change by being a socially responsible corporate citizen.
