On Wednesday, 12th of October 2022, IGNIS banking class of Fidelity Bank partnered with Lagos Food Bank for their corporate volunteering exercise which included a food distribution outreach for elderly women in Agege/Dopemu community.
The IGNIS bank class team was received warmly and led to the Food Bank warehouse. Activities of the day kicked off with the packaging of food items into the boxes of hope. Elderly women in Agege/Dopemu community excitedly marched into the food bank premises patiently waiting for the collection of their food items and other relief materials. The food box distribution started at exactly 12:15pm as the women couldn’t contain their joy and were dancing and jubilating as they received the boxes.
It was a beautiful experience starting with the packaging of boxes to the distribution and smiles and dancing of the elderly women. “This has inspired me to want to do better and always give back to society in my own little way,” said Tola, a volunteer of LFBI.
The beneficiaries were happy and grateful and prayed for bigger growth and expansion of the initiative and its partners.
