Remaining committed to the community, IT&E and the mayor’s office of Rota also cut the ribbon for the Sinapalo’s Children’s Park playground. The installation of the playground was made possible through a partnership between IT&E and the Rota mayor’s office. IT&E donated the playground equipment and the Rota mayor’s office installed the equipment.

“Giving back to the communities we serve is an important part of our new brand. We’re excited that the children in our community now have a new and accessible playground that allows families to enjoy the natural beauty of Rota,” said Angela Rosario, director of marketing & product development.
