Employees of Santa Rosa Morgan Stanley office exchange suits for work clothes for volunteer stint at Redwood Empire Food Bank

John Evans plucked juicy plums from a bin Wednesday and packed them neatly into plastic bags inside the Redwood Empire Food Bank’s cavernous warehouse just north of Santa Rosa.

The financial adviser with Morgan Stanley usually wears a suit to work, but on this afternoon, Evans and 21 of his colleagues were dressed in blue T-shirts identifying them as “Morgan Stanley Volunteers.”

For Evans, volunteering with the food bank for a few hours was an opportunity to give back to the community and help low-income people eat fresh, healthy food.

“I’m a fortunate person and it’s nice to do things for others,” he said. “This is a way to introduce people to fresh food and maybe change their diet.”

The volunteers from Morgan Stanley’s Santa Rosa office bagged fruit and sorted cereal a day after the company announced it had given $50,000 to the food bank, which feeds 78,000 needy Sonoma County residents each month.

The grant is to fund the food bank’s Farm to Family program, a child-hunger initiative that helps ensure low-income families have access to healthy, nutritious food, the food bank said.

“It’s great to have the help because of all the people we feed each month,” said Mike Iritz, a food bank volunteer specialist. “These volunteers have a lot of energy. They know they are helping out.”

Anna Camera, a business development manager with Morgan Stanley, said it was great to volunteer at the food bank’s new $9 million, 60,000-square-foot headquarters.

“I think they’ve done a great job in building a state-of-the-art facility,” Camera said while moving bags of corn flakes. “I love to volunteer.”

For financial analyst Doug Brinker, the opportunity to volunteer was better than giving money.

“It’s a good feeling to help the needy,” he said, plums in hand. “You can donate money, but working really gives you satisfaction. It’s sweat equity.”
