Correct Craft employees built and repaired infrastructure at this Jamaican school recently.

Two groups of more than 60 employees from Correct Craft traveled to Montego Bay, Jamaica, on service trips between June 29 and July 8.

The volunteers from Correct Craft and its various subsidiaries — Nautique, Centurion, Supreme, SeaArk, Bass Cat, Yar-Craft, Bryant, Aktion Parks and Pleasurecraft Engine Group — worked Naz Children’s Center, a school outside Montego Bay.

They built and stained a fence, a pergola and several picnic tables, as well as doing other maintenance and repairs. They also distributed food to families in the community and donated AV equipment to a 180-year-old church.

It was the 11th year Correct Craft employees have performed service trips. They have also volunteered in Cambodia, India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, and throughout Central America and the Caribbean.

“It was an honor to see firsthand in Jamaica the Correct Craft culture of ‘Making Life Better,’ and I was thrilled that several of our employees from Centurion and Supreme could participate,” Centurion and Supreme president Paul Singer, who attended his first service trip this year, said in a statement.

“Our team at Centurion and Supreme is committed to our local community and serve it regularly, but it was also exciting to serve the school in Montego Bay, alongside employees from our fellow Correct Craft companies,” he said.

“Over the past 11 years our employees have traveled the globe serving the less fortunate, and we were honored to help Naz Children’s Center in Jamaica,” Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin said.
