Back to school in style

One hundred students went back to school in style at the start of the new academic year, thanks to donations by staff at CIBC Bank and Trust Company (Cayman). 

The lucky students benefitted from a special back-to-school drive donation which took place on Monday, Aug. 21, as employees at CIBC met with Leanora Wynter-Young from the Cayman Islands Department of Children & Family Services, to present 100 backpacks filled with school supplies to 38 high school and 62 primary school students. 

The supplies were collected and generously donated by CIBC staff during in August to benefit families in the Community Development Programme.  

This year, CIBC Bank and Trust Company (Cayman) Limited celebrates its 50th anniversary in Cayman and the firm has a long tradition of giving back to the community in which its people both work and live 

“This was an idea that was originally generated by our staff and the back-to-school drive was a huge success,” said Daniel Wright, chairman of CIBC Bank & Trust Company. “We are confident that this will bring smiles to kids and their families.”
