Today Mr. David Rose, Chief Executive Officer of RUBiS Energy Bermuda, announced: “On behalf of RUBiS Energy Bermuda, I am very pleased to donate $5,000 to the Eliza DoLittle Society (EDS). RUBiS is aware that as result of continued unemployment and a continuing increase in the cost of living, many Bermudian families are facing economic pressures and have difficulty in making ends meet. The Eliza DoLittle Society’s mission is to reduce hunger and food wastage in Bermuda by collecting and distributing food to agencies that feed Bermuda’s hungry, and like many charities, they are also facing challenges with the amount of donations they receive.”

Mr. Rose continued: “You may recall a recent news article where it was reported that some of the agencies responsible for handing out non-perishable goods had actually run out of food as Christmas approaches. The Eliza Doolittle Society’s food bank had been empty for two weeks up until the beginning of last week.”

Margaret Ward, Executive Director of the EDS, said: “We have seen a dramatic increase in the number of unemployed people desperate for groceries and food items in the last few weeks. The demand is so high now our food banks are struggling to keep up, and indeed this would be an impossible task without the support of companies like RUBiS. We are so grateful for their donation, especially at this time of the year.”

Mr. Jermaine Simons, Sales Manager of RUBiS Bermuda added, “RUBiS Bermuda has been supporting the Society since 2010 by donating all of the fuel for the Society’s two delivery vehicles. This donation helps them provide the services which are critical for Bermudian families that find themselves in a difficult financial position. RUBiS Bermuda is committed to Bermuda and we are proud to assist wherever we can.”
