Last week Monday, the home for children, located at Buccament, was given $5,000 to go towards enclosing the compound, which would enable the residents to plant fruits and vegetables on the land surrounding the home.

The presentation was made by Basil Alexander, Scotiabank’s country Manager, and Noelene Dickson, the bank’s relationship officer.

Accepting the cheque on behalf of the home was Major Pierre Antoine of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Salvation Army.

Antoine thanked the bank for the contribution, expressing gratitude for the continued assistance that the children at the home have been receiving.

The initiative was done under the Scotiabank Bright Future Programme, which aims to unite all of the bank’s charitable efforts under one umbrella, in order to have a stronger impact on the financial institution’s desire to help children.

The Bright Future Programme is the foundation of Scotiabank’s philanthropic efforts and incorporates both corporate giving and employee volunteerism.

“Our goal is to give hope to youth by supporting education, arts and culture, and the environment, as well as by helping the underprivileged and abused. Scotiabank’s community involvement programmes are an important element of Scotiabank Group’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility,” the bank says of its Bright Future Programme.
