MINNEAPOLIS and ST. PAUL, Minn., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 7, employees of M&I, a part of BMO Financial Group, rolled up their sleeves to help several local community organizations as part of their annual Volunteer Day.
Nearly 200 M&I employees in the Twin Cities took time away from their desks to assist the Ronald McDonald House, PRISM, Feed My Starving Children, 360 Communities, Second Harvest Heartland, St. Croix Valley Habitat for Humanity and AEON.
"In addition to providing corporate financial resources, we are committed to supporting our community through the giving of our employees' time and talents year-round," said Jim Sathre, Senior Vice President. "Volunteer Day is just another demonstration of that commitment."
These activities are part of BMO Volunteer Day in which over 6,500 BMO Financial Group employees across North America will be participating in more than 400 projects to improve their communities.

This is the first North American-wide BMO Volunteer Day that initially started with efforts at both M&I in 2001 and Harris and BMO Capital Markets in 2007.
