CIBC First Caribbean Staff par­tic­i­pate in Sal­va­tion Army Food Drive

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - Pro­gramme.

Just in time for Christ­mas, the spot­light fell on the staff of CIBC FirstCaribbean In­ter­na­tional Bank dur­ing a short cer­e­mony at the Bridge Street branch to hand over food and toy ham­pers to the Sal­va­tion Army. The Bank opted to sup­port the drive by so­lic­it­ing con­tri­bu­tions in­ter­nally. Team mem­bers across all CIBC FirstCaribbean branches brought in food and toys to con­trib­ute to the ham­pers.

CIBC FirstCaribbean has sup­ported the ef­forts of the Sal­va­tion Army over the years in tan­gi­ble and mean­ing­ful ways that aid the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s com­mu­nity out­reach. The most re­cent was the host­ing of the launch of the 2016 Ket­tle Ap­peal at the Bank’s Rod­ney Bay Branch ear­lier this month. At the launch­ing cer­e­mony the Bank made a con­tri­bu­tion of EC$5,000 to­wards the out­reach

The De­cem­ber 23rd ges­ture was in sup­port of the an­nual drive by the Sal­va­tion Army to sus­tain its daily soup kitchen which feeds over 50 per­sons per day, and free day care/pre-school for 60 chil­dren, which en­sures strug­gling par­ents are able to go to work. The Sal­va­tion Army’s drive will also fa­cil­i­tate the dis­tri­bu­tion of 1,500 parcels of food, up from the 800 last year, to needy fam­i­lies this Christ­mas sea­son.
