Clarien launches Christmas charity effort
Clarien Bank Limited has launched its 13th Annual Holiday GiveBack Campaign, encouraging clients, employees and the entire community to celebrate the season of giving by making donations that will again benefit Meals on Wheels.
Since 2010 Clarien Bank’s Holiday GiveBack campaign has raised more than $100,000 for Meals on Wheels. The Clarien Foundation will proudly match all donations (up to a capped amount) from customers and the community to help ‘keep the wheels moving’ to provide freshly-cooked meals for those unable to cook for themselves, such as the sick, elderly and disabled.
Through December 31, 2019, all members of the public are invited to make donations as follows:
? Use one of the Holiday GiveBack quick deposit envelopes available at any Clarien Bank branch.
? Make a donation directly to a teller at Clarien Bank Main Branch, 19 Reid Street, Hamilton or Clarien Bank Paget Plaza, 161 South Road, Paget.
? Transfer funds to Clarien’s Holiday GiveBack account (account number: 4010060068)
All donations for the Clarien Holiday GiveBack Programme must be received by 4pm on Tuesday, December 31, 2019.
Michael DeCouto, SVP, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer of Clarien Bank, said: “We are again proud to partner with our friends at Meals on Wheels as community resources are in increasing demand. Last year, we were able to present Meals on Wheels with a cheque for more than $18,000, a record for the Holiday GiveBack campaign. We truly appreciate the community’s generosity as we all collectively donate to support the Meals on Wheels organisation during this season of giving.”
For more than 40 years, Meals on Wheels has been delivering freshly-cooked, nourishing lunches
across Bermuda to those unable to prepare a proper meal for themselves. It presently delivers 180-200 lunches four days a week as well as approximately 80 additional frozen meal replacements for Thursdays and weekends. The regular deliveries also provide an important and reassuring daytime check on the welfare of recipients.
Peter Smith, President of Meals on Wheels, said: “The holiday season is particularly challenging for many of our friends in the community who depend on nutritional support through Meals on Wheels services. We are extremely grateful to Clarien Bank and all who donate in support of the Holiday GiveBack programme for their on-going support for this important initiative.”
