For the third year in a row, Citibank opted to participate in the United Way National Day of Caring through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity.  Our selected projects give the bank management and staff an opportunity to work closely with our Homeowner families in their own community, and 2017 was no exception.

Dozens of volunteers laboured enthusiastically throughout the day to build food storage cabinets for our Homeowners in Cashew Gardens.

Others had lots of fun helping the younger residents of the area to visualize their dreams for the future.

The bank also packaged generous hampers of groceries, and one anonymous donor even sent out special “Mother’s Day” gifts of handbags and cosmetics as a special surprise for all the hardworking Mums!

You can browse through lots more photos on our Facebok Page, using the hashtag #ndoc2017 and check out the first video by our volunteer videographer Oyatayo Raymond Ojaode  below:
