Standard Chartered Bank collaborated with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative to bring smiles to the faces of thousands of people in Lagos.

The bank partnered with the non-governmental organization to sort, pack and distribute 300 food and dental hygiene boxes with items sufficient to support underprivileged and vulnerable families with a minimum of five individuals per family.

This initiative, which was targeted at reducing hunger, creating more social impact in the communities, and demonstrating the Bank’s dedication towards supporting communities where it operates in, was executed with the support of 50 colleagues from the Bank’s Head Office in Lagos.

Speaking on the event, AGM/Acting Head of Corporate Affairs, Brand and Marketing of the Bank, Joke Adu said, “We are very proud of the volunteering opportunity we had with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative today. As a Bank, we believe in contributing our time, expertise, and resources towards improving the various communities where we operate in.

“To achieve this, every employee gets three days every year to volunteer towards various initiatives focused on education, employability, entrepreneurship, environmental protection, relief effort support etc that foster development and economic empowerment in society.

“Today, we have packed and distributed food boxes that will support over 300 families across the state as a testament to our commitment towards making a positive impact in the community. For us this is one of the many ways we continue to reiterate that we are here for good.” she added.
