New York –

Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) today announced the third year of “Feeding Kids Around the Clock,” 24 hours of employee volunteer activities worldwide dedicated to raising awareness of child hunger. Building on the impact of last year’s initiative, which provided nearly 1.9 million meals in one day, today, starting in Sydney and ending in Maui, Morgan Stanley employees around the world join forces to fight child hunger and witness the difference one single day of service can have on an organization, a community and a child’s life.

Over 100 projects are taking place as part of Feeding Kids Around the Clock, leveraging Morgan Stanley’s global footprint to raise awareness on child hunger and give children the opportunity for a healthy start to life. But this is just the beginning. Feeding Kids Around the Clock is kicking off the 14th annual Global Volunteer Month, an annual Morgan Stanley campaign every June which began in 2006 and urges employees worldwide to donate their time and effort to volunteer and better the communities where we live and work. Since its inception, the campaign has recorded over 2.1 million hours of employee volunteering.

This year also marks Morgan Stanley’s 10-year anniversary partnering with Feeding America. Since 2009, Morgan Stanley has committed more than $23 million, benefiting 117 United States food banks providing over 211 million meals around the country. Thanks to this essential partnership and our partners globally, today, Feeding Kids Around the Clock projects will take place in 83 cities around the world. Employees and the public will be able to follow along as meals are tracked and events take place around the world on our website and on social media @MorganStanley.

“For more than 50 years, Morgan Stanley has been committed to helping children get a healthy start in life, and having access to nutritious food is essential to this mission,” said Joan Steinberg, Global Head of Philanthropy at Morgan Stanley. “With an engaged employee base and a culture of giving back, Morgan Stanley is committed to leveraging our global reach and using all resources at our disposal to help give children the healthy start they need for lifelong achievement.”

Partnering with Feeding America and Food Bank For New York City, Morgan Stanley is holding an employee volunteer event in Times Square today, from 8:00 a.m. ET to 5:00 p.m. ET to pack meals and raise awareness on child hunger in the U.S. Morgan Stanley is tracking meals delivered throughout the day, posting updates on its digital exterior signage in Times Square and on social media using #MSGivesBack. Millions of meals will be provided to children and families in need during this 24-hour period, but with 150 million kids under the age of five living in hunger, this battle can’t be won alone. Join Morgan Stanley in raising awareness on child hunger by posting on social media with the #MSGivesBack hashtag.
