Today Scotiabank (Belize) Limited opened a book drive in which customers are asked to donate books and other supplies at their Scotiabank branch countrywide.

Managing director for Scotiabank Michael Shaw says it is a re-commitment to two causes for the bank – health and education. Response so far has been “overwhelming,” he says.

The Ministry of Education is also chipping in, according to Deputy Chief Education Officer Dr. Carol Babb. They have collected a donation from staffers which will be handed over.

At the end of the month Scotiabank and the Ministry will distribute the books to selected schools. The initiative will become an annual event.Aaron August 11 lady
