“BF&M staff helped out in a number of ways. They contributed to a company-wide drive to bring in items such as soap, deodorant and toothpaste. They volunteered their time to prepare and fill the care package bags. They also organized the distribution of the packages. BF&M supplemented staff donations with a further $20,000 of personal care essentials,” a spokesperson said.

Abigail Clifford, President and Group COO, commented: “With the cost of living increasing in Bermuda, families with limited resources are finding it harder and harder to afford both food and basic necessities.

“When faced with having to choose between personal care items and food, food is typically prioritised. As a committed partner and supporter of the Women’s Resource Centre, we wanted to show our support of their invaluable work by responding to this need that they brought to our attention.”

“Donations like this make it possible to share hope with the women in the community and we thank BF&M so much for helping us to make this possible.”
