CIBC First Caribbean Staff participate in Salvation Army Food Drive
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.
