10,000 Ameriprise Financial Volunteers Work To Feed Hungry Families At Nonprofits Across The Country

For the fourth year in a row, Ameriprise Financial (NYSE:AMP) is bringing together thousands of volunteers at food banks across the country to help make Thanksgiving better for families in need. On Nov. 15, more than 10,000 Ameriprise financial advisors, employees and clients will spend the day at 394 hunger-relief facilities in all 50 states, sorting food donations and packaging meals to help meet the increased demand for hunger-relief services during the holiday season.

Ameriprise organizes this annual day of service each fall to help the one in six Americans, including 16 million children, who struggle with hunger. Since its launch in 2010, the event has grown to become the largest volunteer day held in partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s leading anti-hunger organization.

“Hunger is a silent crisis for the 49 million Americans who struggle with it every day,” said Brian Pietsch, head of community relations at Ameriprise. “It’s a grave reality for people in communities across the country, many of whom never expected they would need help feeding themselves or their families. We are passionate in our support of nonprofits that provide relief to these individuals. It’s moving to see the impact we’re able to make by bringing together our advisors, employees and clients to help feed those in need.”

Ameriprise also is encouraging its employees, advisors, clients and the general public to make a contribution to help fight hunger in the U.S. by donating to Feeding America, at supportfeedingamerica.org/Ameriprise. Through Nov. 30, the company will match donations dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000. Each dollar raised during the Feeding America Matching Challenge provides 16 meals to hungry families during the holiday season.

“We are proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the incredible network of Ameriprise volunteers as we work together to help those in need this holiday season,” said Bob Aiken, CEO of Feeding America. “Their commitment to hunger relief can be seen at food banks across the country with more than just words, but action. Their efforts, combined with proceeds from the Ameriprise Financial Challenge, will help provide thousands of meals for our neighbors, friends and others in our communities who are at risk of hunger.”
