Maritime Brings Christmas Cheer to Communities in Trinidad & Tobago
In November, The Maritime Financial Group executed a company-wide toy drive dedicated to spreading Christmas cheer to communities within Trinidad and Tobago. Maritime Team Members joined together and donated over 400 toys to the Office of the Councillor for St. Barb's/Chinapoo, Office of the Councillor for Barataria and Montevideo Government Primary School.
All three parties reached out to Maritime back in early October with the same goal in mind-- to help parents, who were significantly impacted by the pandemic, bring some Christmas joy to their children and families.

This is the company's second internal donation drive for the year.
Back in August, the company raised ten-thousand dollars ($10,000) worth of toiletries and donated to several girls homes including St. Mary's Children's Home, Sophia House, Couva's Children's Home, Mother's Union and Hope Center. Moreover, supplies were given to thirty-nine (39) migrant women and teenage girls at the ACSO Medical Department of the Defence Force Headquarters and twenty (20) families with teenage girls from the Morvant, Laventille and Barataria area.
The Maritime Financial Group's social investment strategy is centered around the theme Our Children, Our Future. The company prides itself on its commitment to the development of children in Trinidad and Tobago and securing bright futures for the next generation.
