The staff of the Half-Way Tree branch of the CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank, in association with the Abba Rescue Mission, help to distribute meals to homeless and mentally challenged persons. The bank’s Adopt-A-Cause programme helped to fund the purchase of food items. Pictured is an employee, Clifton Hunter (right), and colleagues distributing meals.

The CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank has given a welcome boost to several local communities, making financial and equipment contributions to a range of projects under the bank's Adopt-A-Cause programme.

In addition, through the programme, bank employees at branches and offices volunteer time to assist in implementing and completing community projects.

From painting and beautifying surroundings, supporting homework programmes, repairing or replacing furniture and equipment, to providing mentorship and scholarship awards, the bank gives back to communities across the island. The bank is one of the largest corporate donors in the region, contributing to hundreds of organisations at national and regional levels.
