Hamilton, Bermuda, November 24, 2022 – Staff from Ariel Re provided a Thanksgiving Day lunch
today for seven mothers and their children at Bermuda’s Transformational Living Centre (TLC) for Families.
Charity Committee members from Ariel Re helped deliver the traditional Thanksgiving turkey lunch
at the surprise event today.
The Transformational Living Centre opened its doors February 2022 and is a non-profit organization
that provides a nurturing and supportive home for mothers and their families experiencing housing
uncertainty. They aim to empower, transform, and support women to move beyond shortage and
provide safe and secure homes for these women and their children in Phase 1 for up to one year.
The TLC states that they are a first step in addressing the growing but largely hidden problem of
homelessness in Bermuda.
“The Transformational Living Centre does a fantastic job in providing help for many families who find
themselves without a home through no fault of their own,” said Veronica King, Vice-President,
Property Reinsurance at Ariel Re. “Thanksgiving Day is a time to reflect on our own good fortune,
and we felt honoured to be able to help the TLC Guest Families by sharing some good food and
cheer with them today.”
Ariel Re previously helped the TLC in late 2021 when it donated $4,000 towards the charity.
“We are honoured that Ariel Re has decided to gift our Guest Families with a delicious Thanksgiving
Day lunch,” said Edonna Bean of the TLC. “Everyone at the TLC really enjoyed being able to
participate in the holiday festivities. Having such generosity and genuine care and concern for our
Guest Families has helped to uplift and restore some hope in many of our mothers that have a
difficult time being able to fully embrace some of the different holidays such as Thanksgiving. We
would like to take this opportunity to thank Ariel Re for their kindness and support of the TLC.”
