At PRMI, we believe giving back reflects who we are as a company. It helps to fulfill a responsibility we have to our communities across the globe. We partner with charitable organizations that allow us to make a positive impact and empower children, families and communities worldwide.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
Leading up to Read Across America day, PRMI held a week-long book drive and collected approximately 400 books. For the nationwide reading celebration, volunteers read books with students at James R. Russell (JRR), a local preschool for low-income families. PRMI donated the books and puppets for every classroom, provided each child a bag with a book to take home, and gave a gift to each teacher.
Elementary schools in remote areas of Costa Rica often lack the resources needed to help their students succeed. A group of PRMI employees visited a school in Ortega to donate supplies for learning and helped repair the facility.
A group of PRMI team members and their families volunteered at an SOS Children’s Village, which cares for orphaned and abandoned children in unsafe situations in Jamaica. Together they planted fruit trees, painted homes and gave the playground area a makeover. PRMI also provided an early Christmas surprise to the children and their caretakers.
