Curtis Martin, Managing Director, JN Bank
The Year 2020 has been a difficult one for all of us, however, together, we found ways to navigate it, and mined from its harsh lessons, new ideas to develop new opportunities for ourselves, our loved ones, our members, and our country.
In other words, as difficult and challenging as the year was, it provided us with new perspectives. It helped us to appreciate the benefit and importance of friendships and socialising with our colleagues; and for husbands and fathers like me, the importance of family, self-care, and mental wellness.
We are proud at JN Bank, that we were able to assist you in various ways, as you tried to maintain your buoyancy: with moratoria on your loans and mortgages, so that thousands of our members could stay focused on achieving their dreams; and with advice through our various virtual initiatives, to keep you engaged, alert and driven.
As we continue to recover together, let us walk into 2021, not timidly…but taller and stronger, as we support each other along the journey.
Just recently, our parent organisation, The Jamaica National Group staged a fantastic concert, which I urge you to go and view on their social media platforms and our JN Bank platforms, to raise funds for the Mustard Seed Communities, an especially important charity, which has been an vital solace to our children, who have nowhere else to call home, because they have been abandoned. Similar to many organisations, it has seen its sources of funding dwindle and, therefore, I encourage you to find it in your hearts this season to give to philanthropic organisations like Mustard Seed, so that they and those whom they care for, can also look forward to a brighter New Year.
Let us be kinder to those who need our help, especially at this time of the year; and let us share with those who may be more in need than we are.
To give to Mustard Seed Communities you can deposit or transfer cash to their JN Bank Chequing Account #20000155091, registered to Mustard Seed Missionaries, which you can do by transferring funds using JN LIVE online banking, or by making a local bank transfer (ACH or RTGS) from any bank in Jamaica; or you can make a deposit to their account via any JN Bank Smart ATM, without the need for a debit card. You can also use the Drop Box.
In addition, donations can be made using a credit card at mustardseed.com; while Jamaicans and others overseas have the option to also visit a JN Money location or use jnmoneyonline.com. Fees have been waived for transactions conducted at a JN Money location.
Together we have made it to the end of this year; and I am confident, that together, we will rise in the next.
We, at JN Bank, are grateful for your loyalty and commitment in 2020 and we wish you, all our members, including all our JN employees; as well as, all Jamaicans locally and in the Diaspora, a Brighter and Prosperous 2021!
