CHARLESTON, SC -

Wednesday December 4 Morgan Stanley executives and employees announced a $50,000 grant to fund the Lowcountry Food Bank's School Pantry Program, a child hunger initiative that helps to make sure low-income families have a readily accessible source of healthy and nutritious food to prepare at home. 

This grant is the second the Lowcountry Food Bank has received this year from Morgan Stanley bringing the total to $100,000.

One in four children go to bed hungry in the Lowcountry Food Bank's 10 county coastal service area.  The Lowcountry Food Bank's School Pantry Program helps to alleviate child hunger through the provision of food to children and their families. Located directly on school grounds, the pantry provides a more readily accessible source of food assistance to low-income students and their families.

The site consistently operates in the same location, has set distribution schedules and offers ongoing food assistance services.  "Morgan Stanley encourages all of our employees to give back to the communities where we live and work, and we are excited to be able to again extend a helping hand to Lowcountry Food Bank," said Smittie Cooler, Senior Vice President, Branch Manager, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, Hilton Head. "Many of us are volunteers at the Lowcountry Food Bank so we know the good work that takes place here, and we are proud that our Firm has been able to bring a second grant to this important community organization."
