Happy Venture Early Childhood Centre, which was in dire need of upgraded bathroom facilitates for their teachers, reached out to the Scotia Investment team in Montego Bay for assistance. Located in Clark's Town, Trelawny, the school had given a timeline to provide suitable restroom facilities for the staff or face closure. Scotia Investment was made aware of the circumstances and contributed $200,000 towards the cause.

Principal Chawn-Tal Anson expressed her gratitude on behalf of the staff and the school community for the kind gesture, saying, "The money will be used for the renovation of the restroom facility for staff members, and is most welcome."
