BNY Mellon Contributes $ 1 Million To American Red Cross, Local Food Banks And Community Groups For Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief

NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the U.S. starts to recover from the devastating impact and extensive damage along the East Coast caused by Hurricane Sandy, BNY Mellon and its employees have moved quickly to help those in need. The company plans to contribute at least $1 million to the American Red Cross, local food banks and agencies engaged to support basic urgent needs in the wake of the storm. BNY Mellon's Hurricane Sandy relief fund includes a $500,000 corporate gift and an additional $500,000 in matching funds available for disaster relief contributions made by its employees.

"Hurricane Sandy has impacted millions of lives and the relief response will be large and costly," said BNY Mellon Chief Executive Officer Gerald Hassell. "Our immediate investment in the American Red Cross will be used to support disaster relief efforts, especially in hard hit coastal communities, including New York City.  Our commitment reflects a tradition that dates back to our founding in New York in 1784.  Our employees have always moved quickly to help their neighbors in times of need."

BNY Mellon's own global business continuity planning efforts were activated well in advance of the hurricane. The company's priorities remain the safety and wellbeing of its employees, the security of clients' financial assets and the continuity of its businesses.

Hassell added, "As the U.S. markets reopen today, our company will continue to support our global clients, with local and out-of-region teams helping to provide extraordinary service."

Powering Potential, BNY Mellon's philanthropic focus, helps to make local communities better places to live and work by targeting organizations that concentrate on workforce development or the provision of basic needs.
