Every year, during the Christmas Season, the National Bank of Dominica Ltd (NBD) embarks on an outreach programme, which touches lives in various communities around Dominica. This year, the Bank brought the Christmas spirit to the children and teachers of the Savanne Paille and Clifton Primary Schools, the residents of Chances in Jimmit, and three families in the north.
On Sunday, 11th December, staff of NBD visited the village of Savanne Paille to spread the joy of Christmas. The children and teachers of the Savanne Paille and Clifton Primary Schools were thrilled with a Christmas Party and the visit from Santa. Students and teachers alike were recipients of gifts from Santa. The Schools principals expressed their pleasure and gratitude to NBD, for choosing to spread Christmas Cheer in their community.
Just a few months earlier, staff of NBD had visited the Savanne Paille Primary School to undertake a project under their ‘Beyond Banking Staff Volunteer Programme’. That same day, another group of NBD’s staff visited residents of ‘Chance’, where they prepared & served lunch, & spent time interacting with the children, who enjoyed the care and attention, while the Bank’s staff themselves had a rewarding afternoon. NBD also made a cash donation to the organisation.
As part of NBD’s Christmas outreach hampers were presented to families in need of assistance. Three families in Paix Bouche, Glanvillia and Toucarie were happy recipients of grocery hampers, each valued at $500.
Managing Director Ellingworth Edwards said he was elated that that NBD could touch so many lives this Christmas Season. He thanked the NBD staff for giving their time and talent. He extended Seasons Greetings to all NBD Customers, and to the general public.
