The Antigua Girls High School has benefited from CIBC FirstCaribbean’s International bank’s Adopt-a-Cause programme.
The bank’s High Street branch conducted a needs assessment and a number of areas were identified for assistance. However, the school identified that there was urgent need for a quality photocopier at this time.
CIBC FirstCaribbean continues to take the lead as a caring Corporate Citizen. Under the bank’s Adopt-a-Cause programme, both of its branches are now involved in community projects. The Care Project at Holberton Hospital and the Mustard Seed Ministries Home – a project for young girls, have also been recipients under the Adopt programme this year.
“Adopt-a-Cause encourages employees to become involved – to volunteer our time – to give back to our community. We enjoy and appreciate the interaction,” says Dawn Soleyn, Manager of the bank’s two branches.
Acting Principal, Rody Christopher accepted the copies and thanked the bank for so quickly responding to the school’s urgent request.
Over the years the bank has been involved in a variety of charitable and community based projects including the T.N. Kirnon School, the St. John’s Hospice, Clarevue Psychiatric Hospital, Ottos Comprehensive School, Buckleys Primary School, and the Victory Centre. The Dyslexia Awareness Centre and five single-parent families have also benefited from this initiative.
Adopt-A-Cause is a CIBC FirstCaribbean Bank programme which enables the bank to support worthy projects within the community, while encouraging staff to volunteer their time in order to make the projects successful.
