L-R. Sophie’s Place Administrator, Mrs. Christine Madden-Watson converses with NROCC employees, Mr. Marvin Reece and Ms. Patrean Roche while her colleague, Nurse Janice Nunes-Lorraine looks on during the handover of items donated by the company on Dec. 22, 2021.
The National Road Operating and Constructing Co. Ltd. (NROCC) considers corporate social responsibility as an important element of any forward-thinking organization. The company aims to actively participate and or contribute to marginalized or underserved communities, as well as stakeholder groups in communities in which it operates.
On December 22, 2021, a small team of employees journeyed to Gordon Town in St. Andrew to extend a helping hand by donating food items and sanitary supplies to Sophie’s Place, a member of the non-profit organization, Mustard Seed Communities. The contribution was a combined effort by the organization and members of staff who rallied together to donate cash and kind to purchase the needed supplies. Employees were happy to participate in the exercise, although not being able to physically visit with the residents because of the pandemic.
This is the second year that NROCC has made a donation to the deserving charity which provides residential care for some of society’s most vulnerable, the majority of whom who are mentally or physically challenged. The institution was appreciative and sent us this Mustard Seed Communities home-made “Thank You” card.
According to Administrator at the home, Aunty Christine:
“The residents, management and staff of Sophie’s Place are extremely grateful for the kindness you and your team continue to extend to us.
We are thankful for the support given in making the lives of our residents more comfortable.
Hearty thank you from team Sophie’s.”
NROCC is committed to being a good corporate citizen and pledges to continue its community outreach programme.
