TIAA Bank Teams Up With Urban League to Impact St. Louis Families This Thanksgiving

ST. LOUIS--()--TIAA Bank, the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis and Schnucks Supermarkets are joining forces again this holiday season to help fight food insecurity.

On November 20, the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis and TIAA Bank volunteers will distribute more than 1,900 free pre-packaged Thanksgiving meals to low-to-moderate income residents thanks to a major sponsorship by TIAA Bank and Schnucks Supermarkets.

“At TIAA Bank, we’re always here to support the communities where we work and live,” said Joseph Hernandez, community reinvestment officer of TIAA Bank. “The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis is making a difference in so many lives and we’re honored to team up to make an even bigger impact at The 25th Annual Turkey Giveaway.”

This marks the third year TIAA Bank has supported the cause and stepped in as Presenting Sponsor. Since teaming up with the Urban League in 2016, the organizations have fed Thanksgiving meals to nearly 6,000 families in low- to moderate-income areas in St. Louis, MO.

“We are both excited and thankful to have TIAA Bank serve as our primary sponsor for our Turkey Giveaway for the past three years. It is only through our valuable collaboration that many of our needy families will be able to have a Thanksgiving meal this year,” said Michael P. McMillan, president and CEO of The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc.
