HBL & Hand In Hand Ministries

Heritage Bank & Hand In Hand Ministries - Partner to build home for deserving citizen!

“If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you’ll end up not doing anything for anybody.” We have always prided ourselves in giving back to our community through various means but this year our approach was a bit different, it was more special and life changing. The Bank, through the assistance of the Hand in Hand Ministries, agreed to finance and construct a new home for a deserving person from the community. Effective March 13th, 2017, every staff member began contributing $1.00 per pay period towards this most worthy cause which was matched by the Bank.

The time had finally arrived, October 6th - 8th 2017, for our staff to build their first home while being the 331st for Hand In Hand. Day 1 commenced with the preparation of the footing the house would rest on and the construction of the wooden walls for the house. Day 2 saw the completion of the floor, the wall, painting and the assembling of the walls for the house. In day 3 the roof was completed, doors & windows were installed and the additional works to complete the project. The work was very labor intensive, especially for our banking team who are accustomed to working behind their desks from 8 to 5. The experience was humbling but even more gratifying seeing all parties involved, inclusive the new home owner, work with one common purpose.

In our daily routines, there is so much we take for granted. It is not until you actually see for yourself the conditions that people live in that you realize how blessed and fortunate you are. The home was built off Partridge Street where the living conditions for many are substandard, but the people don’t cry or complain. They wake up every day hoping for a better tomorrow. The Heritage family made that hope a reality for one deserving lady (chosen by Hand in Hand). Our hard work was very much appreciated as the new home owner (Ms. Jenny Pinelo) received her new home October 19, 2017.

We saw the fruits of our labor. The look on Ms. Pinelo’s face, her gratitude, her hope, her new reality, was enough for us. The team acknowledged that this is something that we should commit to do annually. I could not agree more. We are grateful to all those who committed their time and efforts in making our first “House Build” a success!

The ceremonies began slightly after 3pm and the guests were delighted by The Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Luis Pook who did a splendid job in both English and Spanish. Cultural presentations were prepared by the ‘Saasil Ja’ Group of Yo Creek, a Mestizo Children’s Dance Group. We were graced in prayer by Rev. Edwin Orosco from La Inmaculada Roman Catholic Parish. Special Guest Speaker was none other than, Mayor of Orange Walk Town, Mr. Kevin Bernard and also seated at the Head Table, was our Managing Director, Mr. Duncan. Welcome address was given by Orange Walk Branch Manager, Mrs. Yasmira Espadas and the Vote of Thanks was given by Branch Supervisor, Mr. Arnel Caceres. The guest list included customers, community members, HBL directors and staff. After the ceremonies, the balloons were lifted in the air and champagne was popped in celebration. A light snack was served and everyone enjoyed the company of the customers and other members of the team on such a memorable occasion. We take this opportunity once again to thank the Directors for trusting in the Orange Walk Community, Mr. Anthony Thurton (the architect), Mr. Hugh Crawford (the contractor) and his team for such a beautiful structure that now captures the attention of all.
