Puerto Rico Work Sites Get Kids Back-to-School

The end of summer signals back-to-school time for children across North America. For many families, ensuring that their children have the necessary school supplies can pose a financial hardship. Securitas USA offices in Puerto Rico participated in a fundraiser sponsored by the United Way. Employee

Puerto Rico Work Sites Get Kids Back-to-School

s began collecting school supplies in May. When the event ended in July, Branch Manager Karenline Cruz, HR Manager Maria Gonzalez and HR Assistant Viviana Nieves represented their fellow employees and delivered more than 700 school items, including backpacks, crayons, glue, notebooks and much more to P.E.C.E.S., a foundation dedicated to helping underprivileged children achieve school goals.

For the past two years, Securitas in Puerto Rico has been active with its local United Way, and although it has participated in food drives in the past, this is its first time collecting school supplies. Securitas Puerto Rico believes that this kind of community involvement differentiates it from the other security companies on the island. “We employ more than 900 employees across the island, and we are able to use our combined strength and resources those less fortunate than we are,” said Gonzalez. 
The back-to-school collection campaign was organized around the slogan of “making a change, one pencil at a time.” To remind employees of the on-going campaign, a donation box was brightly decorated and placed in the office along a school-themed wall. Since the campaign ran for more than a month, there was plenty of time for employees to participate.

The campaign concluded with the delivery of the supplies to P.E.C.E.S. The foundation had invited some of the families it serves to attend. It was almost like a scene from Christmas morning. The smiles and looks of delight on the children’s faces said more than words could express how much they appreciated the generosity of Securitas’ employees.

 

Securitas Hosts Career Day for the American School for the Deaf

When Securitas' East Hartford, CT office was contacted by the Coordinator of Transition Programs at the American School for the Deaf (ASD) about introducing its students to professional opportunities in the security industry, it leapt at the opportunity to organize an event that accomplished just that. The Career Day event was part of an effort by the school to expose its summer session students to different career clusters. ASD was the first permanent school for the deaf in the United States and is known for its commitment to providing comprehensive learning opportunities for the deaf and hearing-impaired.

Securitas Career Day for the ASD sought to give the students a better understanding of a career in the security industry. The agenda included a virtual tour of the Experience Center in Charlotte, NC and the opportunity to learn more about the kinds of jobs available in the profession. The event concluded with lunch. 

Securitas Hosts Career Day for the American School for the DeafBranch Manager Tracy Hurlburt, Area Vice President Steve Kinross, HR Manager Jay Agosto, Field Service Manager Ed Rivera, Area Training and Development Manager Glenn McIntyre, and Sales and Marketing Support Specialist Kevin Klaskin all participated to represent the variety of available positions. As part of the presentation, each gave a brief overview of their functions and the career path that had brought them to their current positions.

ASD makes use of the latest technology to improve students’ access to language, and the Hartford branch was eager to show how Securitas USA employees incorporate technology in their work. Students were given a demonstration of the equipment and tools used in the field and by officers to perform their duties.

“This was an exciting opportunity for us,” said Hurlburt. “It was an honor to host an organization that has been an influential part our community for a long time.”
