Post Consumer Brands supports the United Way’s Action Day with volunteers and a $10,000 donation
In preparation for the upcoming school year, Post Consumer Brands recently donated $10,000 to support the Greater Twin Cities United Way’s Action Day 2021 event. On Thursday, Aug. 12, hundreds of volunteers, including a group of PCB team members, gathered at Allianz Field in St. Paul to pack 50,000 backpacks.
Each year, more than 10,000 Twin Cities-area students return to school without the supplies they need to succeed in the classroom. Action Day aims to address these educational disparities, which were amplified by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, by providing much-needed support and school supplies to local students in need.
A group of Post Consumer Brands’ team members joined the effort along with volunteers from other Twin Cities-area businesses, packing more than 200 backpacks on-site at Allianz Field. “It was inspiring to see Twin Cities-area businesses come together to support education in Minnesota,” said Jill Bollettieri, senior vice president and general counsel at Post Consumer Brands. “Together, we’re making a real impact.”
Giving back and strengthening our communities is core to Post Consumer Brands’ corporate responsibility efforts. We take pride in our local communities and work to support them by giving back through food donations, philanthropic activities, and volunteer efforts throughout the year.
