Appleby Makes Holiday Donation To STAR

December 19, 2016

Appleby’s Bermuda office recently presented Christmas trees, holiday food hampers and gifts to local charity STAR [Supportive Therapy for Aids Persons and their Relatives], which has provided support for almost 30 years to persons with HIV and their families.

The Partners and staff participate annually in STAR’s Christmas Donation Drive by supporting six families.

The partners donate Christmas trees, food hampers and fruit baskets and staff donate gifts such as toys, clothing, vouchers and toiletries. Bermuda Managing Partner Tim Faries and volunteer staff coordinators presented the donated items to STAR representative Ms Ruth Skinner.

Mr Faries said, “We have been working with STAR during the holiday season for 18 years and hope that our continued support provides some additional Christmas cheer to our STAR families. We believe in community involvement and are happy to be a part of STAR’s mission.

“I would like to thank our staff who generously donated and our volunteer coordinators who assisted with the hampers on each floor. Our volunteer coordinators are Cindy Barber, Carla Best, Shirley Eve-Burgess, Lisa Lacey, Thalia Lightbourne, Carmen Lodge, Tamsin Logan, Tina Nusum, Bethea Pearman, Penny Pfenning, Calvin Steede, Tiffany Stevens, and Tiffany Tavares.”

STAR’s work in the Bermuda community has benefited more than 170 people at its Lighthouse facility, which aims to provide a family environment for residents, including men, women and children.

In addition, STAR offers support throughout the island to persons living with HIV by way of confidential counselling and personal caregivers visiting homes, the hospital and hospices.
