CBS China Bank Savings, through its partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), will be one of the major sponsors for this year’s National Teachers Month Culmination Gathering in Butuan City, on October 5th.
With the theme Together 4 Teachers, Appreciation, Admiration, Approval, Attention, CBS, through its APD Lending Group, continues to support DepEd in this annual endeavor, allocating P8M pesos worth of exciting prizes and giveaways for participating colleagues and teachers. The prizes include ten (10) 32-inch Samsung smart TV sets, thirty-five (35) Dell laptops, twenty (20) Honda Click 125i motorcycles, one brand-new Toyota Raize, and one brand-new Toyota Innova.
The Bank recognizes the passion and dedication of the Filipino teacher community. Over the years, CBS implemented programs for the benefit of teachers and students in the public school system. These include the CBS DepEd Venture Alay sa mga Guro and Financial Wellness Road Show, Brigada Eskwela, Brigada Pagbasa, and the CBS Gadget Assistance Program.
As part of its nation-building initiatives geared towards financial inclusivity, the Bank on-boarded and opened free basic deposit accounts for 32,000 public school teachers via the CBS Go app. These digital accounts will help teachers nationwide grow their savings and easily conduct transactions online.
