Philadelphia, PA, June 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Atlantic Capital Trust, LLC, a privately owned corporation, is also dedicated to helping create a hunger-free community for children around its headquarters.
Atlantic Capital Trust, LLC's hunger initiative, is an extension of Atlantic Capital Trust, LLC's overall corporate responsibility efforts, which also include: improving the health of undeserved people, improving U.S. public education, supporting people and communities through United Way and similar efforts, and environmental stewardship.
"We believe every person is born with the right to a hopeful future, and the right to be fed," said Bill Hampton, Atlantic Capital Trust, LLC Chairman of Atlantic Capital Trust foundation. "But today, 1 in 6 people globally are hungry. More than 25,000 people die each day from hunger and malnutrition. That's like 60 fully loaded jumbo jets crashing each and every day." As the population grows toward 9 billion at mid-century, the problem of hunger could grow staggeringly.
Atlantic Capital Trust, LLC employees have also been inspired by the hunger cause, donating approximately $200,000 to Heifer International from their own pockets in just two years.
