Appeal for customers to donate towards food hampers for families in need

A campaign to provide food for families at Christmas has been launched by two charitable organisations.

The Lions Clubs of Bermuda, along with the Island’s MarketPlace stores, announced their 23rd annual ‘Share the Christmas Spirit’ campaign.

Fresh vegetables for the hampers are to be donated by Pacheco’s Farm.

“We are reaching out to the community of Bermuda to help us in providing non-perishable items and placing them in the bins that you will see decorated at all the MarketPlace stores throughout the Island,” said campaign chairperson Dessaline Waldron.

“We all know that this global financial downturn continues and more Bermudians are still presently not employed and the number keeps growing. In 2010 we packed approximately 425 food hampers. As we are expecting this number to rise tremendously, so give generously for this worthwhile project and let this year be another successful campaign.”
