Butterfield’s Third Annual Back-to-School Drive Helps 500 Students in Need

For the third consecutive year, The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited (“Butterfield”) and its employees have completed a back-to-school fundraising drive.  Proceeds are being used to purchase basic but essential school supplies for over 500 primary and middle school students in need. 


Students from 14 primary schools and four middle schools will receive school supplies that include backpacks, lunchboxes, water-bottles, notebooks, pencil cases, pens, pencils, hand sanitisers and key-rings. The number of students in need of donated school supplies is substantially higher this year than it has been in previous years, due to the current economic downturn.


Funds for the school supplies were generated from four Butterfield employee denim days that raised just over $6,000, which was matched by the Bank. A.F. Smith generously provided the school supplies at cost.


Michael Collins, Butterfield’s Senior Executive Vice President, Bermuda said, “At Butterfield, we take seriously our commitment to supporting our community, particularly during challenging economic times.  On behalf of the Bank’s senior management team, I’d like to thank the Butterfield employees who organised and supported the back-to-school drive initiative, exceeding last year’s drive by 60%.” Mr. Collins also noted, “Many thanks also to A.F. Smith for providing the supplies at cost. The collaborative effort helped us achieve even greater results.”


Tim Smith, President & CEO of A.F. Smith said, “We were pleased to be able to help support Butterfield’s back-to-school drive and assist in providing young people in our community with the tools they need to succeed in school.”
