KFC Halloween drive to donate to food charity
A group that provides meals for the disadvantaged is to be the beneficiary of a charity campaign by a fast-food restaurant.
KFC Bermuda announced that the proceeds from their sixth annual Halloween treat voucher campaign will go towards the Eliza DoLittle Society in recognition of the 62,000 meals they have handed out since the start of the year.
Danielle Riviere, the executive director of The Eliza DoLittle Society said: “We are delighted that KFC has decided to partner with us in this year's Halloween fundraising initiative.
“We truly value the opportunity to spread our message to the local community.”
She added: “We want to make Bermuda a better place by addressing issues that exist and providing support for those in need.”
Ms Riviere said: “We know how exciting Halloween is for our young ones and to be included in an initiative that will help benefit our organisation, is a wonderful opportunity.”
Booklets of five treat vouchers are available this month, while stocks last, for $2 at the Reid Street, Hamilton, restaurant.
The vouchers can be used by children aged 12 and exchanged at the restaurant for a free apple turnover, chocolate chip cookie or an order of French fries.
They can be distributed to children on Halloween, or to classrooms or sports teams and are valid from November 1 to January 31 next year.
Restaurant staff will also volunteer with the charity to help distribute food to those in need.
Ginene Haslam, the general manager of KFC, said: “As we kick off our sixth consecutive Halloween campaign, we are pleased to partner with The Eliza DoLittle Society.
“Through our broad and diverse customer base, I am sure that we can help build public awareness of this important local charity, and its initiatives.”
