More than 60 employees from several Correct Craft companies recently visited Montego Bay, Jamaica, on employee service trips. Two employee groups traveled between June 29 and July 8.
Employee volunteers from Correct Craft and its various subsidiaries (Nautique, Centurion, Supreme, SeaArk, Bass Cat, Yar-Craft, Bryant, Aktion Parks and Pleasurecraft Engine Group) banded together to help Naz Children’s Center, a school outside of Montego Bay.
During the trip, Correct Craft employees served the school by building and staining a fence, a pergola, and numerous picnic tables amongst other maintenance and repair projects.
Food was also purchased and distributed to families within the community. Additionally, the Correct Craft team visited a 180-year-old Jamaican church to learn about the history of the church and donate AV equipment for their services.
This recent trip marked the 11 year Correct Craft has taken employees to serve in various communities around the world. Previous service trips have been in Cambodia, India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, and throughout Central America and the Caribbean.
Centurion and Supreme President Paul Singer, who attended his first Correct Craft international service trip this year, said he was was thrilled several of his employees could participate.
“Our team at Centurion and Supreme is committed to our local community and serve it regularly, but it was also exciting to serve the school in Montego Bay, alongside employees from our fellow Correct Craft companies," Singer said.
Also joining the group in Jamaica was Nautique President Greg Meloon.
“The Nautique Team has embraced the culture of serving our community both locally and globally as part of our Nautique Cares initiative.” Meloon said. “Their willingness to volunteer on this summer’s project in Jamaica demonstrates the compassion and motivation at the heart of our team.”
Over the past 11 years, Correct Craft's employees have travelled the globe serving the less fortunate, said Bill Yeargin, president and CEO of Correct Craft.
"We were honored to help Naz Children’s Center in Jamaica,” Yeargin added. “We have an amazing team of people who embrace our culture of Making Life Better and I am honored to serve with them.”
