The Colorado offices of Morgan Stanley recently teamed up with the Food Bank of the Rockies as part of the Firm’s annual Global Volunteer Month, where Morgan Stanley employees across the country, including Denver, volunteer their services. 

Dozens of Morgan Stanley employees spent the day at the Food Bank’s distribution center to help pull together orders for much needed food and supplies for local hunger relief programs.

Morgan Stanley Northern Colorado Kirby Kuklenski, who sits on the Food Bank’s finance committee, says this is the fourth year Morgan Stanley employees in the Denver area have volunteered at the Food Bank to help combat hunger. “Global Volunteer Month is an important reminder to us all that 1 in 7 Coloradans worry where their next meal will come from, and we are glad we can team up with the Food Bank to make a positive impact.”

The local volunteer effort is the latest phase of Fill the Plate, Morgan Stanley’s long-standing partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger-relief charity.  Last month, Morgan Stanley granted $50,000 to the Care and Share Food Bank in Colorado Springs to help fund its Send Hunger Packing Program, a child hunger initiative that helps to make sure kids are fed when they are not in school. 

In total, Morgan Stanley has committed more than $13 million for the Feeding America network to distribute millions of meals to children and families across all 50 states.  As part of that initiative, Morgan Stanley will award more than $1 million each year for the next four years to local food banks, like Care and Share Food Bank to launch, expand and sustain critical childhood feeding programs.
