The HRC will stage the Community Aid-Bermuda Shines on November, 27th 2020 through major
television media outlets.
HRC President, Graeme Henderson commented on the fund-raising project:
In our capacity as Rotarians we always strive to live up to our motto of,
“Service Above Self”.  In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic we have all suffered
major impacts to our normal way of life.  Those of us who are lucky have been
able to continue productively with our professional lives by leveraging technology
and working remotely without loss of income.  However there are many
throughout the community who have been much less fortunate and are in need
of community assistance and we aim to do the utmost we can to answer the call.
 
Proceeds from this worthwhile fundraising initiative will be put towards efforts to
provide support for the broad cross section of the community who have been
impacted by the COVID-19 restrictions to a disproportionally negative degree. 
This includes but is not limited to the vulnerable elderly who have both found
themselves isolated and socially disconnected due to their health safety
concerns.  Very often their despair is compounded by a lack of resources and or
the knowhow to utilize remote connectivity platforms that could allow them to
congregate electronically with loved ones and friends.    
 
There are also many on the island who are on the verge of destitution due to how
the pandemic has ravaged parts of the economy.  Through no fault of their own
these hard working Bermudians have had their livelihoods put on hold for an
indefinite period of time.  We are seeking to provide support for those and their
families who are most vulnerable at this time.  We ask that you see fit to aid us in
this very worthwhile endeavor to provide support for those in our local
community who need support the most at this time.
