Hurricane relief drive tops $25,000
More than $25,000 has been raised to support hurricane recovery in the Caribbean.
Clarien Bank set up a hurricane donation drive to support Red Cross relief efforts after Hurricanes Irma and Maria left destructive paths of devastation earlier this year.
Clarien Bank chief marketing officer Michael DeCouto said: “We sincerely thank the entire Bermuda community for your donations. Critical resources are urgently needed, and your contributions will support our friends in the Caribbean as they continue the difficult process of recovering and rebuilding.”
Clarien Bank matched $10,000 in donations. The funds will be managed through the Bermuda Red Cross for direct distribution to Red Cross societies from around the world currently assisting with multi-country relief and recovery efforts in the Caribbean.
Bermuda Red Cross executive director Ann Spencer-Arscott said: “I am always so humbled by the overwhelming support provided to Bermuda Red Cross when we launch a disaster appeal.
“When we see the devastation that has occurred to our sister islands in the Caribbean, we are reminded that this could have been us and we need to remember how important it is for everyone to be prepared for any eventuality than can occur in our lives.
“It has been a pleasure to partner with Clarien Bank and with their help, the funds raised has been increased by $26,975.”
