In partnership with non-profit COCINA (Coalition of Children in Need), Checkers will be sending 20 of its employees on a mission trip to Haiti in February 2016. There, our employees will be in the community of Ouanaminthe, helping to reconstruct deteriorated structures, build water purification systems, and teaching school children. Here at Checkers Industrial, we believe that education is valuable and that all children should have access to learning and basic necessities like water. We have particularly chosen Haiti due to its under-developed circumstances. In addition, our volunteers will be working on-site at Institution Univers, a K-13 school founded by COCINA in 1994.
While travel expenses for our employees will be covered, Checkers and its’ employees are seeking donations for material and equipment costs needed for community projects. Water is the most essential in these communities and as our volunteers plan to set-up purification systems, water is, unfortunately, the most costly of all the materials needed. For this reason, additional funds are fundamental so that our volunteers can help change lives in the Ouanaminthe community. This mission is extremely important to Checkers and we hope to continue this mission as a tradition for many years to come.
