FCIB dresses down for kids

FirstCaribbean
International Bank staff recently raised money for Big Brothers Big Sisters
with a dress down day on Friday 21 May to coincide with child month. Schools
and businesses allowed students, faculty and staff to dress down in return for
a donation to the Big Brothers Big Sisters programme.

The
mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to help children reach their potential
through professionally supported, one-on-one relationships with mentors that
have a measurable impact on their development.

“FirstCaribbean
International Bank is committed to building strong communities and is proud to
support the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters because of the benefits it has for
young people and the community as a whole,” said Manager Process Improvement at
FirstCaribbean International Bank Richard Lewis.

“Dress
Down Day is always fun for us and the bank’s staff really enjoy it!”

Charmaine
Moss, a Big Brothers Big Sisters board member thanked the bank.

“By
investing in our children we are in turn investing in everyone’s future,” said
Ms Moss.

“Proceeds
help us fund mentoring for those young people who need it most within our
communities. It enables us to recruit, screen and select volunteers, and
provide ongoing supervision and support for every matched Little Brother or
Sister. As Herbert Hoover once said, children are our most valuable natural
resource.”
