Appleby participates annually in STAR’s Christmas Donation Drive by supporting six families with food hampers, fruit baskets, toys, clothing, vouchers and toiletries, as well as delivering Christmas trees to their homes.

STAR representative Ruth Skinner was presented with some of the Christmas goodies by Bermuda Managing Partner Tim Faries and volunteer staff coordinators on Friday.

Mr Faries said, “This marks our 21st year working with STAR during the holiday season and each year we hope that our continued support provides some additional holiday cheer. I would like to thank our staff and partners who generously donated and extend our very best holiday wishes to the STAR families.”

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.
