Security Bank Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of Security Bank Corporation, donated printing equipment and supplies to Usocan Elementary School, a far-flung public school in the municipality of Plaridel, Misamis Occidental in Mindanao, to support the education of its Kinder to Grade 6 pupils during this COVID-19 pandemic who can only rely on modules for learning due to unavailability of gadgets.
Usocan Elementary School received a printer, ink refill sets, ring binder and accessories, as well as bond papers that can help the school produce 40,000 pages of modules enough for its 194 pupils for academic year 2020-2021. The donations were turned over last November 7, 2020 at Security Bank branch in Dipolog City, Zamboanga Del Norte facilitated by its Business Manager Leslie Te and Branch Channel Manager Gina Bel Senining.
“Our deepest gratitude to Security Bank Foundation for donating the essential printing equipment needed by the school to ensure learning is uninterrupted for its pupils during this pandemic. With the Foundation’s generosity, we now have enough supplies to produce modules and deliver quality education. This is really great help to our learners,” expressed Maria Erica Ligason, Principal of Usocan Elementary School.
“We are glad to have worked with the Security Bank Foundation in providing the much-needed resources to a far-flung public school near our area which will help them carry their mission of building the dreams of the young generation through better education,” said Leslie Te, Business Manager of Security Bank Dipolog Branch.
“It is absolutely necessary to invest in teachers, students, and the school as a whole. The progress of our nation is in their hands, and it is up to us to support them by giving them the tools they need,” expressed Rafael F. Simpao, Jr., Chairman of Security Bank Foundation.
Security Bank is one with the nation in helping the schools and communities cope with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
