Holiday Hunger Help from Colina

Insurer donates to Hands for Hunger

Nassau, The Bahamas, December 21, 2021 – Today, Colina Insurance Limited (Colina) stocked the Hands for Hunger pantry ahead of the holidays. Employees of the Internal Audit, Risk and Life Claims departments contributed an assortment of canned goods to the non-profit organization; the company supported their efforts by donating six thousand dollars towards the purchase of additional items.

“We were pleased that our employees took initiative to support an organization during this festive season,” said Maxine V. Seymour, Director, Corporate Communications, Colina.  “While the holidays are a time of abundance and cheer for many, there are some who are unable to access to basic meals”. 

“We hope that these items and funds will help to brighten the holidays for families in our community,” said Seymour.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic Hands for Hunger has expanded their reach in the community to meet the needs of individuals and agencies.

“We are honoured to partner with Hands for Hunger again this year,” said Giorgina Duncanson-Thompson, Chief Group Internal Auditor, Colina Holdings Bahamas Limited. “It is always a privilege to support the work of this incredible organization”. 

“Our employee volunteers usually gift wrap presents  at the Mall at Marathon in December with Hands for Hunger benefiting from funds raised,” said Duncanson-Thompson. “This year things are a bit different, due to the pandemic, but we decided to contribute nonetheless”.

Colina has a long standing partnership with Hands for Hunger.  The non-profit is committed to providing food assistance to the most vulnerable in the Bahamian community. 

The donation was presented at Colina’s corporate offices at 308 East Bay Street.
