UTC Volunteers Plant Trees with Local Children


This April, employees from UTCFSOtis and Carrier in Hong Kong joined together to donate their time to a good cause.

Over 130 volunteers from UTC joined 80 children to teach the importance of environmental protection. The event gave participants the chance to plant trees – an experience in nature that’s rare for most residents of urban Hong Kong. “It’s great to meet the kids and help give them an appreciation for nature,” said Mr. Peter Lam, Executive General Manager of Fire Safety.

 


The children come from low-income families and were brought together by the Tung Wah Group, which runs 40 youth and family services centers in Hong Kong. The event took place on Mount Davis, which is a scenic.
