CitySavings breathes life into volunteerism for Brigada Eskwela 2017

PDFPrintE-mail

City Savings Bankers from 106 branches nationwide participated in this year’s Brigada Eskwela in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd) and the respective local government units last May 15 to 20.

Over 800 CitySavings team leaders and team members alike volunteered to do repainting and minor repairs  to more than 300 school buildings and facilities located all over the country.

In Cebu City, DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones together with other DepEd officials attended the National Brigada Eskwela kick off in Ramon Duterte National High School where she mentioned that “Education is given much importance in our nation.  Parents would even sell their last properties and resources just to send their children to school. Everyone is interested to learn so let’s continue our efforts in Brigada Eskwela.  While it is true that financial contributions have increased, this is just one of the measures.  We recognize and will continue to work with civic organizations who have already been going out on field and initiating strategies to reach out with the communities”.

DepEd Assistant Secretary Tonisito Umali also emphasized that “Even if we’ll just paint 5 chairs, if we sum these up, we can see the impact and the beauty that we give to these respective schools. We encourage all our schools to engage in partnerships with all stakeholders not just during Brigada but throughout the school year”.

“The support of City Savings Bank has contributed a lot to the success of Don Pablo Lorenzo Memorial High School’s Brigada Eskwela here in Zamboanga City. The volunteers showed the spirit of bayanihan and sense of community service by repainting our school library” shared the school’s Brigada Eskwela Coordinator Emil Aranal.

“I’m very thankful that an organization like City Savings Bank cares and extends help to make our school better. As a student and Supreme Pupil Government President, it motivates us to go to school and study harder” mentioned Kaye Ann Gan of Bago Elementary School, Davao City.

“With this year’s Brigada Eskwela theme, Isang DepEd, Isang Pamayanan, Isang Bayanihan, para sa Handa at Ligtas na Paaralan, we at CitySavings consider this event as an opportunity for our employees to take part in nation building by painting classrooms and doing minor repairs, in line with our Bank’s core values of service and responsibility” said CitySavings FVP - Sales and Marketing Head Bombi Dominguez. ###
