Award recognizes commitment to hunger relief

May 2016 │ New York

Food Bank For New York City, the city’s largest hunger-relief organization, recognized Deutsche Bank as Corporate Champion of the Year at its annual volunteer appreciation event earlier this month.

The Bank has partnered with Food Bank since 2002, engaging hundreds of employee volunteers in the fight against local hunger and food insecurity. More than 150 employees volunteered with the organization in 2015 alone.

Gleb Zhgun, from Global Markets, accepted the award on Deutsche Bank’s behalf. Gleb has volunteered for more than five years with Food Bank’s volunteer income tax assistance (VITA) program, contributing more than 150 cumulative hours of service to help low-income New Yorkers obtain much-needed tax refunds and credits. "Preparing tax returns in person is a rare opportunity to apply technical skills to directly contribute to the financial well-being of low-income New Yorkers," he said.

The tax assistance program is just one of the Food Bank For New York City programs with which employees volunteer. Since 2011, Deutsche Bank has had a standing monthly volunteer shift serving dinner at the organization’s West Harlem Community Kitchen. Employees also volunteer at its Bronx Distribution Warehouse and at community events.
