Single Mother of Four Receives New Home Courtesy Heritage Bank and Hand in Hand Ministries  

One Belize City family is heading into the Christmas season inside a brand new home. Earlier this year, Angela Jones and her family experienced misfortune after their home on North Creek collapsed. Fortunately for Jones and her family, Heritage Bank Limited selected them to receive a brand new home. As a part of the Heritage Bank’s corporate social responsibility, they build and donate a home to a needy family annually. In partnership with Hand in Hand Ministry, Heritage Bank employees take time away from the office to assist with the construction process. Today, the single mother, and her four children, received the keys to their new home.

“This is annual for us and the Hand in Hand Ministries do the interview and ground work to ensure that it is a family in ended and in this particular case I am sure you would remember the news item that this family’s house dropped off the stilts and fell down. The mother is someone that does some work with us and so the family is known to us and Hand in Hand Ministries did their usual screening and thought that we could assist so we did.”
