Families benefit from Scotiabank’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme – 11th Mar 2013
At the weekend, with assistance from Habitat for Humanity, the Bank will be assisting in the building of a house for Amanda Anthony.
Anthony, a mother of two said, the announcement came at the ideal time, since she is experiencing a rough patch.
The other mother who was on the receiving end was Vanessa Simon, a mother of five. Simon said she juggles some four odd jobs to enable her to fund her five boys through school.
She received a $50,000 gift voucher from Giftland Office Max and $100,000 from Scotia.
Also on the receiving end was 23-year-old Collis Augustine, who was named winner of the first international Scotiabank’s Bright Future Young Leaders Award. He received $2500 Canadian dollars to donate to any charity of his choice.
