Ahead of the start of classes on August 29, 50 Security Bank employees from Area 27 Mindanao lent their helping hands to paint the classrooms donated by Security Bank Foundation, Inc. (SBFI) to Tambo Central School in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte. The two-story, six-classroom building will be officially turned over this November as part of SBFI’s “Build a School, Build a Nation” classrooms donation initiative.
“Camaraderie, teamwork, and the spirit of volunteerism—these are the traits that I hope motivate our Security Bankers to excel further, especially knowing how generous the Bank is when it comes to supporting education,” said Francisco L. Santos, Security Bank Area 27 Branch Banking Group Head.
A total of 400 volunteer hours were contributed by the group which helped accelerate the construction of the building. Upon the building’s official turnover in October, SBFI will reach its 721st classroom donation.
“This school painting activity shows the collaboration of Security Bank and its stakeholders. We wholeheartedly thank the Bank for its tireless support to the educational community not just for our school, but also for the whole country,” said John Ryan dela Cruz, Principal of Tambo Central School.
The school painting activity in Iligan, Lanao del Norte followed one that was held at Lapu-Lapu, Cebu on August 19. Another school painting activity was also held last September 9 at Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija.
“The school painting activity is an opportunity for Security Bank’s employees to give back to the communities they serve and to be personally involved in our social responsibility programs,” said Rafael Simpao Jr., Chairman of SBFI.
