RACINE, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Johnson Financial Group announced today that it will partner with Feeding America, Second Harvest and Feed My People to feed families across several Wisconsin communities over the holidays. Johnson Financial Group’s gift coincides with the company’s 50th anniversary.
Johnson Financial Group will donate $300,000 to support hunger relief efforts this holiday season. This includes $50,000 donations in six of Johnson Financial Group’s key regions in honor of the company’s 50th anniversary.
“Who would have imagined we would be facing a pandemic this year,” said Jim Popp, president and CEO of Johnson Financial Group. “Our communities need help now and these organizations will help us make sure that even the most vulnerable will have something during the holidays.
