HilltopSecurities Helps Fight Hunger with $50,000 in Donations to Food Banks Across U.S.
HilltopSecurities recently donated a grand total of $50,000 to food banks across the United States to help feed individuals affected by coronavirus-related layoffs and furloughs.
“Widespread unemployment and underemployment has forced many people to turn to their local food banks for relief. However, with so many more people in need and fewer donations, food banks are struggling to meet the demand,” said HilltopSecurities’ President and CEO Brad Winges. “HilltopSecurities is committed to helping our communities through this pandemic, and donating to food banks was something we could do that would make an immediate impact in the lives of countless individuals.”
The firm made donations of $5,000 each to 10 food banks in communities where it maintains branch office locations. The firm also encouraged its employees to supplement its contributions with personal donations to the same food banks or food banks of their choosing. The food banks who received donations include:
In early April, HilltopSecurities also offered to provide free financial advisory services to community-based hospitals with 75 beds or less in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico who are experiencing financial distress due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
