Following a very successful 5th consecutive ‘Halloween Treat Voucher’ Campaign, KFC announced that they raised $5,058 in support of Knowledge Quest, after another year of selling treat voucher booklets at their Queen Street, Hamilton location.
Knowledge Quest has provided approximately 220 college and university scholarships to Bermudians of limited financial means since its formation in 2002, so KFC was excited to handover a sizable cheque to help the charity, its initiatives and those who need financial assistance.
For only two dollars, packets of 5 vouchers were available from KFC to redeem for KFC product with retail value up to $12.25. Each voucher allows a child aged 12 or under to redeem it and receive either an apple turnover, one order of French fries or a chocolate chip cookie. All vouchers are valid until January 31st, 2020 at KFC’s Hamilton location.
Ms. Cynthia Cox, Director at Knowledge Quest said, “We were delighted that KFC decided to partner with us in this year’s Halloween fundraising initiative. For those who did not know who we are, or what we do, this campaign was a great opportunity to get our message out to Bermuda’s youth; that there are needs-based scholarships available to those who do well in high school”.
Ms. Cox continued, “We are very grateful to KFC, and everyone who purchased a voucher booklet. Knowledge Quest is a fully volunteer-operated charity with every dollar raised going toward scholarship grants. On behalf of everyone at Knowledge Quest, we ‘Thank You’ for doing the right thing and funding college/university education for Bermudians with legitimate financial need.”
Ms. Ginene Haslam, General Manager of KFC, says: “We would like to thank our customers for supporting this campaign. We are very happy to have raised $5,058, and I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate the two  top fundraisers: Tashay Minks and Kelly Tweed. We know how challenging fundraising can be for local Charities, so being able to help their local programmes and initiatives with this contribution is rewarding”.
