Morgan Stanley Provides Investment in Fight Against Youth Hunger
Morgan Stanley, Montgomery staff members took a moment away from their volunteer work in support of Montgomery Area Food Bank (MAFB) today, to present a Morgan Stanley Foundation $50,000 Grant Award, which will fund a pilot program called School Pantry Program (SPP), which will target the needs of Montgomery’s at-risk, school-aged children.
“We are honored to be able to help Montgomery Are Food Bank in its important fight against child hunger,” said Morgan Stanley Financial Advisor and Senior Vice President Lawrence Oakley. “Our employees volunteer regularly with the Montgomery Area Food Bank, so we are delighted to extend our support through this grant and provide even more children with the food they need to learn, grow and thrive.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to receive this generous grant from the Morgan Stanley Foundation,” said , Rich Deem, MAFB Chief Executive Officer. “In fact, this grant is actually for $70,000 over two years! Morgan Stanley has not only provided us with the funding to launch this much-needed program, but they’re even giving us the leg-up we need to ensure its sustainability.”
