Morgan Stanley Puts Family-To-Family Giving Projects Front and Center
Over three days in June, five groups of employees at Morgan Stanley in New York City came together for an in-house giving event to make Family-to-Family’s Birthday Bags, Stuffed Shirts and “S’nocks.” The event, which drew about 100 employees, was part of Morgan Stanley’s 10th Annual Global Volunteer Month.
Almost 200 finished projects (birthday parties in bags for kids, t-shirts with personal care products and new socks filled with snacks for the homeless) were delivered to Covenant House in New York, to be given out to teens and young adults in need.
Keller Williams Chooses F-to-F Giving Project for “Red Day”
“Had a great day stuffing t-shirts… This project was a great choice for us!” Carol Vigorito of Keller Williams Realty and her company’s team of realtors in Queens, New York made and donated 121 “Stuffed Shirts” at their annual “Red Day” giving event on May 14th.
The t-shirts, which were filled with basic hygiene items like shampoo, soap and toothpaste, were delivered to Queens Community House, where they’ll be given out to families struggling with poverty.
