Clarien Bank volunteers last week joined the Meals on Wheels staff in preparing lunch for the community and raising awareness of the 11th annual Clarien Holiday GiveBack programme.
Holiday GiveBack is a donation initiative which encourages Clarien employees, customers and the entire community to collaboratively provide assistance to Meals on Wheels during the season of giving. The programme goal is to provide important resources to an organisation that is committed to the needs of the community.
Clarien encourages the whole community to “keep the wheels moving” by making a donation through December 31, 2017 at its branches or online. The Clarien Foundation will match all donations (up to a capped amount) and all funds raised will go directly to the Bermuda Meals on Wheels programme.
Meals on Wheels delivers freshly-cooked, nourishing lunches across the island to those unable to prepare a proper meal for themselves, such as the sick, elderly and disabled. It presently delivers 180-200 lunches four days a week as well as about additional 80 frozen meal replacements for Thursdays and weekends. The regular deliveries also provide an important and reassuring daytime check on the welfare of recipients.
How to donate:
Clarien customers, organisations and members of the public can make donations as follows:
- • Use one of the Holiday GiveBack no-wait 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 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 Sunday, December 31, 2017.
