"SCOTIABANK has embarked on a library development project at the Lady Hochoy School in Penal. Staff members of the Penal Branch have been volunteering their time and effort to regularly visit the school, walking with their paint brushes to ensure that the library’s walls were in top condition."


The article reports on the corporate social responsibility acts by the ScotiaBank to give back to the community through efforts at developing a school library. The efforts are aimed at the Lady Hochoy School in Penal, where the Bank members have been involved in painting the library's walls and volunteering their labour and service to the library. Services rendered other than the painting of the library, include "the procurement of bookshelves, desks and chairs, as well as sourcing reading material for the children to enjoy”.
