Bank of Guam’s social responsibility in the time of COVID 19 remains the overriding purpose in partnering with groups who are helping front liners and the community directly.

Beginning in late March, the Bank pioneered the theme, “Healthy Meals for Healthcare Heroes,” delivering over 450 meals to Guam Regional Medical City Hospital, Seventh Day Adventist Clinic, FHP Clinic, and the Public Health Clinics (Central Clinic in Bar-rigada, Southern Clinic in Inarajan and Northern Clinic in Dededo).

The Bank acknowledges the generosity of companies such as Crust Pizzeria, Subway, Three Squares Guam, Red Lobster and Capitol Kitchen.

Recently, Bank of Guam donated $22,500 to Catholic Social Services, Ministry to the Homeless, Manelu, Guahan Sustainable Culture and PPE Guam/Ayuda with the aim of helping those who provide direct services to those in need for produce, food, meals, and personal protective equipment. Contributions to help our Saipan brothers and sisters are also forthcoming.

Additionally, the Bank is working with the organizations to offer financial empowerment workshops to their employees and the community.

Joaquin Cook, Bank of Guam’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “The Bank of Guam has and will always be ready to support our community in any way we can.”

“We have shown this through years of disaster recovery efforts in collaboration with various local and national non-profit organizations. While supporting our community’s neediest through financial contribution remains a focus, collaborating with the same organizations to also financially empower our community aims to create long term resilience and protection from future financial struggle.”

“We encourage all our corporate partners to sup-port the call for help, and thank the many who have responded with big-hearted generosity.”
