NGL and its employees donate $75,000 to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin

The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) was as surprising to National Guardian Life Insurance Company (NGL) as it was to most people and businesses throughout Madison and the entire nation. The majority of NGL’s 350 plus employees worked in the office. But within the course of a weekend and two business days, nearly everyone was transitioned to work from home.

NGL continues to keep its employees and the community a top priority. Knowing that many people are concerned not only for their health and safety but also worried about how they will survive financially, the leadership team at NGL decided to give back and support Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin.

The generous donation of $75,000 from NGL and its employees will help to provide 225,000 meals to people in our community. NGL is a longtime donor and proud to support Second Harvest, an organization committed to ending hunger. 

This is a stressful time, many people have children at home, elderly parents, family members at-risk and are concerned for their own health and safety. There is so much happening right now, being worried about where your next meal will come from shouldn’t be an issue. We are all in this together, and nobody should go hungry. With our contribution we hope those in our community receive the resources needed to keep their spirits up and remain healthy,” shared Knut Olson, NGL President & CEO.

Second Harvest will be creating care boxes for families impacted by coronavirus in southern Wisconsin. Second Harvest anticipates it will need to create 100,000 care boxes to families struggling with hunger after the closures of schools and businesses.

“As a result of unprecedented times, Second Harvest is having to take unprecedented measures to make sure the needs of those struggling with hunger are met,” said Second Harvest President & CEO Michelle Orge. “We are honored and grateful that National Guardian Life Insurance Company has put their trust in us to meet their desire to help the community through these trying times. It is through meaningful partnerships like this that we, collectively, will come out stronger in the end.”
