Bank’s Xmas giveback to Meals on Wheels

Clarien Bank's Holiday Giveback campaign is to celebrate the spirit of Christmas by supporting Meals on Wheels.

The community is encouraged to “keep the wheels moving” by making a donation in branches and online from November 25 to December 31.

Chief marketing officer Michael DeCouto said: “Last year's campaign raised almost $15,000 and since 2010 we have been able to donate more than $85,000 to Meals on Wheels.

“Holiday Giveback has become a Bermuda tradition and we hope that the community will continue to celebrate the season of giving and generously support Meals on Wheels which provides such a welcome and important service to those unable to cook for themselves.”

The Clarien Foundation, which has backed the charity for 11 years, will match all donations up to a capped amount.

All funds raised will go to the programme, which has for 40 years delivered fresh-cooked lunches to people unable to prepare a proper meal for themselves.

The charity supplies 180 to 200 lunches four days a week and an additional 80 frozen meal replacements for Thursdays and weekends.

Meals on Wheels president Joe Gibbons added: “During the holiday period, there is always an increase in demand for our services and the funds raised by the Holiday Giveback programme enables us to provide the extra food and transport necessary to meet this need.

“Meals on Wheels and all our clients deeply appreciate the continued support of Clarien Bank and everyone who donates to Holiday Giveback.”

Clarien customers, organisations and members of the public can make donations by:

• Using one of the Holiday Giveback no-wait deposit envelopes available at any Clarien Bank branch;

• Making a donation directly to a teller at Clarien Bank Main Branch, 19 Reid Street, Hamilton or Clarien Paget Plaza, 161 South Road, Paget;

• Transferring funds to Clarien's Holiday Giveback account (account number: 4010060068) or;

• Shopping at Gibbons Company's “Shop & Give Thursday” on December 14. Donate a minimum of $5.00 and receive 25 per cent off regularly priced merchandise.

All donations must be received by 4pm on Sunday, December 31. For more information, visit www.clarienbank.com/giveback, e-mail giveback@clarienback.com or call 296-6969.
