Twin Cities Office Conducts 4 Volunteer Days
Milwaukee (November 29, 2016) – To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Reserve Advisors, Inc. is implementing a year-long giveback program for Feeding America. From August 2016 to July 2017, employees from Reserve Advisors will donate their time to Feeding America food banks in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Tampa and Washington, D.C. Altogether, the company plans to conduct 16 Feeding America volunteer days, providing nearly 1,000 hours of employee manpower to the non-profit organization.\
“We felt our company anniversary presented a special opportunity to help others,” says co-founder John Poehlmann. “You don’t often think about hunger in the United States but it’s a real problem. Ted and I, along with our employees, will roll up our sleeves to support Feeding America throughout the year.”
The Feeding America campaign kicked off on August 18 when a group of employees from Reserve Advisors’ Minneapolis office spent the afternoon at the Second Harvest Heartland East Metro food bank (a member organization of Feeding America) sorting food and packing and stacking boxes to help provide 9,500 meals.
On October 13, the group packed 3,062 lbs. of food at the Second Harvest Heartland West Metro food bank. The employees plan to return to the East Metro location on February 7 to pack boxes and will schedule one more volunteer day in 2017.
Feeding America serves all 50 states through a network of 200 member food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs. Every year, the organization relies on more than 2 million volunteers to feed 48 million Americans — including 15 million children and more than 5 million older adults — who struggle with hunger.
Reserve Advisors was founded in 1991 by John Poehlmann and Ted Salgado in Milwaukee, Wis. The company quickly distinguished itself by delivering professional reserve studies prepared by engineers. With a continual focus on integrity, customer service, professionalism, accountability and technical quality, Reserve Advisors grew from a single office to the eight regional locations it has today.
