The hotel’s involvement in the event promotes the spirit of volunteerism.
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Hyatt Regency Trinidad participated in the United Way of Trinidad and Tobago’s annual National Day of Caring held May 21. This year, 30 of the hotel’s employees painted, refurbished and restored the AMICA House for socially displaced girls between the ages of 0-18 years old. The team focused heavily on renovating the homework center as well as the entire back of the junior dorm building and the perimeter fence that runs parallel to the building.
“We were very happy to revisit the AMICA House this year as we had painted the senior and junior dorms just a few years ago. The girls deserve to be in an uplifting environment and we are honored to have been able to roll up our sleeves provide that for them,” said General Manager Russell George.
As part of the Hyatt Thrive program, Hyatt associates around the world come together in a brand-wide effort to improve the many communities around the world that they call home. The initiative empowers the hotel’s employees to improve the local community by focusing on four main areas: environmental sustainability, economic development and investment, education and personal advancement, and health and wellness.
Hyatt Regency Trinidad has partnered with United Way of Trinidad & Tobago’s National Day of Caring since its inception and has partnered with The Cotton Tree Foundation, Christ Child Convalescent, AMICA House and Rainbow Rescue. On last year’s National Day of Caring, Hyatt Regency Trinidad’s employees refurbished Trinidad’s Rainbow Rescue home for boys.
