Butterfield Employees Raise Food and Money for Working Poor

For a second year in a row, Butterfield employees helped Bermudian families in need by holding fundraisers and an Easter food drive.

 

Approximately 200 families will be helped by Butterfield’s Community Outreach this Easter– employees brought in enough canned, boxed and bottled food items to fill approximately 60 large plastic bins and perma-pack boxes. An additional $4,355 was raised by employees via two Denim Days. The money went towards purchasing additional food items, including chickens for Easter dinner.

 

Butterfield’s President & CEO, Brad Kopp, said he was pleased Butterfield employees came forward yet again to support this worthy cause.

 

“We are pleased to announce the return of a very successful Butterfield community initiative–the Easter Food Drive. As Bermuda’s local bank, it’s important that we continue to give back to the community that has supported us for 152 years,” Mr. Kopp said.

 

“Volunteerism is an important tradition at the Bank; one that we can all be immensely proud of. Our food drive is once again targeting a segment of the community that is most in need and, as was the case last year, we will work with The Salvation Army and Hands of Love to distribute the food collected.”

 

Major Doug Lewis said the Salvation Army was thrilled when it heard that Butterfield was continuing its Food Drive efforts again this Easter.

 

“Everybody wants to help at Christmas but people are hungry year round,” Major Lewis said. “So for a company to do something like this at Easter is excellent timing.”

 

Major Lewis said the Easter Food would be donated this week to hand-selected families that the Salvation Army deemed to be the most deserving and in need.

 

“More families are becoming what we call ‘working poor’. When one spouse is terminated or laid off and one income is left in the household to pay all the bills, it can be hard. So something like this, it’s perfect.”
