Voya Financial and Americares share a commitment to bringing urgently needed help to people in crisis no matter the challenges. For more than 10 years, Voya Financial, its employees and the Voya Foundation have helped to ensure that Americares is prepared to respond to emergencies.
Partnering with Resources, People and Passion
Voya Financial is dedicated to families affected by poverty and disaster in the U.S. and around the world. Over the last decade, the company has been a true partner to Americares in every sense of the word. They have provided leadership as an Americares Emergency Response Partner, in supporting our U.S. Program, on our board and advisory committees, and as multi-year sponsors and event chairs for the Annual Airlift Benefit.
Partner in Emergency Response
Voya was a founding member of the Americares Emergency Response Partner program. “We recognize that adequate preparation is crucial to Americares ability to respond quickly and efficiently to emergency situations,” said Angela Harrell, head of the Voya Foundation and Voya Financial’s Office of Corporate Responsibility. “We’re proud of our partnership with Americares, which demonstrates our commitment to helping our neighbors, customers and employees across the country when a crisis strikes.”
Compassion in Action
For the third year in a row, Voya employees came to the Americares warehouse in Stamford to pack and prepare emergency aid kits as a part of the company’s annual day of service. For the Voya team, it provided a direct link to the work they support through their corporate and employee giving. “It’s really about the collective ‘we’ and making a broader impact not only in the United States but to touch the far reaches of the world,” said Joe Miranda, Voya’s Chief Digital Officer. “Just knowing that each one of these individual kits that we touched is going to go to someone in need, it’s heartwarming.”
