The companies visited children at the Heritage Homes & Orphanage (Lagos), The Poorest of The Poor Orphanage (Abuja) and Rhema Orphanage Home (Port Harcourt). The company donated items such as food, beverages, toiletries and electrical appliances to the Homes.

The FBNI Staff Gift Drive which incepted in 2015 is in its 5th year.
