Republic Bank Donates To St. Patrick’s Catholic Church (Hillsborough) Dorm Restoration Efforts

St. George’s; July 15, 2019: Almost fifteen (15) years since the passage of Hurricane Ivan over Grenada and its dependencies, some organizations continue to struggle with their rebuilding efforts.

The St. Patrick’s Catholic Church is the main parish center serving Carriacou and Petit Martinique. In 2004, the dormitory was destroyed by the hurricane and reconstruction commenced in 2006; funded primarily by fundraising activities organized by the communities. To date, they are still a long way from completing this project.

Republic Bank, through its flagship Power to Make A Difference (PMAD) Programme, has responded positively to their request for assistance with a donation of $40,000.00 (Forty Thousand Dollars). The funds will assist with the rebuilding of the ground floor of this dormitory and is expected to bring the lower level to a fully functional state; to be used for youth initiatives and other community-based activities.

Republic Bank acknowledges that the Church has made great social impact in the community over the years and is very pleased to partner with them towards this cause. This contribution falls under two of the pillars of the PMAD programme: the “Power to Help” and the “Power to Succeed”.
