Donations Accepted At Sagicor Bank Locations For Sigma Run 2021
Persons wishing to support the fundraising efforts for the beneficiaries of the 2021 Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run can now do so using the donation drop boxes at select Sagicor Bank branches island-wide as well as some offices of Advantage General Insurance Company.
The selected Sagicor Bank branches and Advantage General Insurance locations are equipped with a branded Sigma Run donation box to allow persons to donate to the cause and contribute to raising a target of $50 million for the three worthy beneficiaries – the Annotto Bay Hospital, the Portland Hospital and a one-year educational programme for students who have been significantly impacted by the disruption in schools caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alysia White, Executive Director, Sagicor Foundation, said the donation drop off boxes were put in place to give more persons the opportunity to participate in the foundation’s drive to raise much-needed funds for the beneficiaries of this year’s charity run.
She noted that the funds raised will help the hospitals to get much needed life-saving medical equipment and enhance the level of care for the people in the communities they serve.
Additionally, White said that Sagicor was especially looking forward to executing the educational programme to help get children back on track with their education, especially in light of the prolonged absence of face-to-face learning and many students are without the means to access online learning.
“We know that persons across Jamaica want to be able to support the cause and this is one way we allow them to easily do so. Monies raised through the Sagicor Sigma Run has impacted so many lives over the years and we are happy to once again partner with the Jamaican public to do it again for our beneficiaries,” she said.
The public can also contribute to the 2021 beneficiaries via various other donation methods, including cheque payment – made payable to Sagicor Foundation Jamaica; direct deposit to Sagicor Bank account number 5502907486; donation via Sagicor Foundation PayPal account or cash drop-off at the Sagicor Sigma Secretariat Office located on the Ground Floor, R.
