Bank South Pacific Samoa staff members collected food items, clothing, toiletries and other items to donate to Goshen Trust, Samoa Victim Support and Ola Toefuataina (Tafaigata Prisons).
Each organisations serves different purposes to the communities of Samoa. For Goshen they assist with the rehabilitation of mental health patients before they are ready to go back to the community. Samoa Victim Support as Samoa knows it offers a safe haven for those who have gone through hard times. The Tafaigata Prison is the rehabilitation of those who committed crime and serving time.
"BSP follows seven values that go hand in hand with our vision and mission. Every month we roll out one value for each department to come up with activities to ensure that our staff members are living these values. For April the value was COMMUNITY. And it was great to see our staff members enjoying the visits to these organisations and donating food items, clothing, and other items from the goodness of their own hearts," said General Manager Mrs Maryann Lameko-Vaai.
"BSP recognises the hard effort by those who run these organisations hence why our staff members handpicked them. We do hope that our staff's modest donations will go a long way for them," adds Mrs Maryann Lameko-Vaai.
"We respect and value the communities that we operate in and we want to grow together with the community by giving back to them through community projects such as these," she added.
With a commitment to supporting the Samoan Community, BSP continues to extend its helping hand in any way in order to help grow with the Samoan community.
