Fiserv Gives Back with Annual Holiday Giving, Including Donating Over 16,000 Pounds of Food
BROOKFIELD, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fiserv, Inc. (NAS: FISV) , a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, announced today that, in addition to its annual holiday giving, Fiserv offices across the globe came together to donate over 16,000 pounds of food to Feeding America and the Global FoodBanking Network, which partner directly with local community food banks. The drive was held during a two-week period in November at over 36 office locations, including seven international sites.
During November, Fiserv associates also raised over $76,000 to help the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions of the U.S. begin to rebuild after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Fiserv matched associate contributions dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000, which resulted in more than $126,000 going to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
In addition, Fiserv associates nationwide collected toys for the annual December Toys for Tots toy drive at Fiserv. The U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots is a national, nonprofit program that collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes these toys as Christmas gifts to local, needy children.
"The dedication of Fiserv associates is what makes these programs successful," said Brenda Potter, vice president, Public Affairs. "With volunteer and giving activities, we are able to make a difference in the local communities where our associates live and work."
Fiserv will also make year-end donations to CARE International and Feeding America on behalf of associates and company clients. CARE is the leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty and Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
Fiserv has more than 20,000 associates working in more than 150 locations around the world, and its core values are demonstrated by supporting the communities in which its associates live and work, with a focus on youth service organizations and providing assistance in the areas of health and wellness, education and financial literacy. These contributions include both monetary support and the organization of volunteer efforts.
