RiverFront Investment Group is pleased to announce Feed More as their 2022 Charitable Giving Partner. The partnership includes a $25,000 donation and a commitment to volunteerism throughout 2022. Due to COVID-19, food donations are down 20%. RiverFront’s donation will purchase 40,000 lbs of food equating to 100,000 meals.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to have been selected as Riverfront Investment Group’s 2022 Charitable Giving Partner,” said Sarah Gravitt-Baese, Feed More’s Chief Marketing Officer. “This generous donation and their continued commitment to fight hunger will help us to grow our comprehensive programs, fortify our network of partner agencies and, most importantly, nourish communities and empower lives across Central Virginia.”
“We’re excited to be working with Feed More this year,” said Kaetlin Collins, RiverFront’s Charitable Giving Committee Chair. “During the pandemic, food insecurity in our region has only increased and we are impressed by the changes Feed More has made to continue to support those in need. The impact our partnership could make, through this grant and volunteering with their numerous programs, made this an easy decision for RiverFront associates.“
This marks the tenth year that RiverFront has selected an annual Charitable Giving Partner based on employee nominations and votes. In addition to the monetary donation, RiverFront commits associate volunteer support for one year. While RiverFront selects a new partner each year, the organization stays involved with past charitable partners through on-going volunteer support. The Charitable Giving Partner program is part of RiverFront’s larger commitment to respect, support and serve its community which included over $113,000 in donations to 60 non-profits and over 650 volunteer hours in 2021.
