For the sixth consecutive year, United Way Trinidad and Tobago placed a call for volunteers to reach out and give some time so that the caregivers and children from Homes across the country could have a day of fun and relaxation at the annual United Way Day of Caring.

Approximately eighty blink I bmobile staff members and their families signed up to work alongside United Way to ensure that the honoured guests were treated to nothing short of an enjoyable Sunday. Anjanie Ramesar –Soom – Manager Corporate and Community Affairs, TSTT spent the day alongside the volunteers as put smiles on the faces of the children and caregivers. She explained that supporting the efforts of United Way as they continue to improve the quality of their lives of those in need is very important to blink I bmobile as corporate citizen and encouraging staff volunteerism goes a long way in helping achieve this goal.
