Capital G’s Holiday Giving Back Programme

November 4, 2013

Capital G have launched its seventh annual ‘Holiday Giving Back’ fundraising programme. Members of the community are invited to donate a Dollar amount of their choosing to the campaign, which this year will once again benefit the Meals on Wheels charity.

“With a mission to allow Capital G employees, customers and the entire community to collaboratively provide assistance to local charitable efforts during the season of giving, the ‘Holiday Giving Back’ Programme was implemented seven years ago and has now launched for 2013,”said Ian Truran, President and CEO, Capital G Bank Limited.

“We are committed to helping programmes like Meals on Wheels during the continuing economic hardships that Bermuda is facing, and believe that our efforts will help provide important resources to an organization that is committed to the needs of the community.”

Capital G’s ‘Holiday Giving Back’ programme donated more than $10,000 last year. Despite tough times, Capital G hopes to again encourage the community’s generosity in the season of giving to show their support for those who – for reasons of age, disability or health – depend on Meals on Wheels to deliver a nourishing cooked meal to their home.

“Capital G understands the importance of being an active partner in our community, even providing charitable assistance beyond donations. In fact, Capital G employees will volunteer at Meals on Wheels during the week of Thanksgiving to assist with meal preparation and delivery,” Mr. Truran said.

Joe Gibbons, Director/Chairman of Meals on Wheels, said: “We are again very appreciative of Capital G Bank for their support this holiday season, and are honored to be selected as the recipient of their 7th Annual Holiday Giving Back programme.

“We continue to see increasing demand for our services during these difficult teams and we are determined to continue to operate at the capacity needed to serve the needs of the community.

“On behalf of Meals on Wheels, I would like to thank Capital G for their partnership through the years, and the continuing commitment they have shown by again providing us with much needed assistance during the holidays.”

Capital G employees will also partner with Meals on Wheels to collect donations during the Gibbons Company Charity Shopping Day on Friday, 6 December. Customers who donate at least $5 will receive 20% off regularly priced merchandise.

In addition, every Friday in December, patrons of Burrows Lightbourn can also contribute to the ‘Holiday Giving Back’ fund by donating a minimum of $5 for a 10% discount on alcohol purchases from 5pm – 9pm.
