Security Bank continues to give back

Enriching lives and building communities

Last holiday season, Security Bank partnered with communities such as the Philippine General Hospital-Cancer Institute, the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Group, and the Community Crafts Association of the Philippines (CCAP) to touch the lives of Filipinos. 

Security Bank Corporation led the Christmas gift-giving program with the Philippine General Hospital Cancer Institute to fulfill the wishes of over fifty cancer warriors and their families.

Enriching the lives of Filipinos

Through its community outreach events, Security Bank remained true to its mission of purposeful giving with continued support for the Philippine General Hospital’s (PGH) Cancer Institute patients. This time, the bank supported its Christmas gift-giving program to fulfill the wishes of over fifty cancer warriors and their families.  

PGH Cancer Institute head Jorge Ignacio and Security Bank VP and corporate communications and brand head Tanya Ansaldo-Deakin welcomed the guests as they spoke about the significance of PGH’s Christmas tradition and their ongoing partnership. The children also prepared thanksgiving messages, songs, and dance numbers which added to the touching yet festive mood of the season. 

Security Bank, through its partnership with Helping Women and Others (HWAO), also provided supplemental funding that built a state-of-the-art Chemo Prep Room for the PGH Cancer Institute in 2021 and significantly improved the delivery of daily chemotherapy treatments. According to PGH director Dr. Gerardo Legaspi, the new Chemo Prep Room now prepares up to 200 chemo cocktails per day, doubling the capability to assist Filipinos afflicted with cancer. The new room also paved the way for the Institute to expand its pharmacy soon. 

"We wanted to continue our support for the PGH Cancer Institute—this Christmas, we welcomed our employee donor and volunteers who made pledges individually and in groups to fulfill the wish lists of the patients," said Ansaldo-Deakin. "We’re so humbled to be part of this program and in some way, spread some cheer to the PGH community this season."

Building communities for a better tomorrow

Anchored on its mission to build communities sustainably, the bank supported Lokalakalan: Kultura, Kabuhayan, Kababaihan at Kalikasan, a trade fair organized by CCAP that promoted community-based artisans in their tradecraft and reflected the country’s strong national heritage. 

CCAP assesses and mentors over 27 communities in Quezon province and the Bicol region through capacity-building workshops, product development and design, and marketing and promotion of their pieces. 

Security Bank and CCT Group strengthen their partnership with the Shoebox project, a community welfare initiative for the marginalized sector.

Security Bank also strengthened its partnership with CCT Group through the Shoebox project, a community welfare initiative for marginalized youth. This project saw the bank’s Wealth Management Division and Branch Banking Group distribute more than 300 shoeboxes to indigent children in December and January. 

"Security Bank is fortunate to work with organizations such as CCT, CCAP, and PGH to help achieve its mission of enriching lives, empowering businesses, and building communities sustainably," added Ansaldo-Deakin. "As we begin 2023, we continue to look for new ways to deliver on our mission and make a positive impact."
