Lend a Hand Bahamas, a Bahamian non-profit organization has announced a charitable contribution of $100,000 from the Kate & Justin Rose Foundation. This donation will enhance vital food security in the community of Adelaide in Nassau, Bahamas for the next 10 weeks.
The Kate & Justin Rose Foundation has committed to supporting 10 weeks of grocery deliveries to approximately 170 households in the Adelaide community through Lend a Hand Bahamas.
A core group of volunteers and staff from Lend a Hand Bahamas will assist in the weekly packing and delivery of food items.
Through their generous support, the Kate & Justin Rose Foundation will provide for over 850 individuals with much-needed support during the tough months ahead.
“Support for communities like Adelaide is critical during these tough times, and we thank Kate and Justin Rose for realizing the need and acting quickly to assist many struggling in the Bahamas,” said Lucas Metropulos, Founder and Board Chairman of Lend a Hand Bahamas.
Justin, a professional golfer, and his wife Kate, have lived in the Albany community just a few miles from Adelaide for six years. Justin said: “We enjoy living in The Bahamas so much, and our hearts go out to all those living here who are reeling from the serious economic effects of the pandemic and the continuing after effects of the hurricane. At times like this it is so important to stand together and support one another however we can.”
Kate said: “Our Foundation’s mission is ‘feeding hungry tummies and curious minds’ and that is simply what we are trying to do here, in partnership with Lend a Hand Bahamas. What could be more important than making sure your local community has enough food?”
