A mother of three in the Georgetown area rang in the Christmas season on a higher note after receiving some much needed help from CIBC.
Ms. Davenet Blake and her boys, ages seven, three and one year old – one of whom has Down Syndrome – were treated to some Christmas cheer and hands-on assistance as staff from CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank came together to paint the interior and exterior of her home, cleaned and applied some interior decorating skills and gifted the home with a stove, some chairs, linens, a food basket, a Christmas ham and other presents.
Ms. Blake expressed her thanks and gratitude to the management and staff of CIBC FirstCaribbean.
Country Head of CIBC FirstCaribbean Shelly-Anne Samuel said, “We know the holiday season can be a difficult time of year for anyone, especially for those who are in need.
We at CIBC FirstCaribbean are proud to be the champion of such a programme, where cooperation and human effort – rather than purely financial resources – are employed to make a positive difference and give back to our communities.”
She explained that “We list legitimate causes that donors choose to adopt and encourage staff involvement in many of our community activities, but through the unique Adopt-A-Cause programme employees get the opportunity to identify projects in their immediate surroundings that they can become involved in.”
