The Corporate Offices of Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. hosts a National Day of Service with the goal of ending hunger during the month of November and encourages all of the branch offices to participate in a day of service within their communities.  For the past six years, Richard Gross, Private Wealth Advisor and owner of the South Lake Tahoe community’s Ameriprise Financial Servicess, Inc. office, has hosted a Bread & Broth Adopt A Day of Nourishment in order to serve the local community members a hot, nutritious meal.

Thanks to Richard’s generous AAD donation of $300, B&B served over 90 dinner guests on November 12th at B&B’s Monday Meal at St. Theresa Grace Hall.   Due to unforeseen events that day, Richard was unable to attend the dinner but Elizabeth Palmer, an office team member, joined the B&B volunteers in serving a filling spaghetti and meatball dinner and helping to pack the food “giveaway’ bags filled with produce, dairy products, canned goods and breads/pastries.

Being a repeat sponsor volunteer, Liz jumped right in along side the B&B volunteers and commented on why she enjoyed helping every year at Ameriprise Financial’s annual AAD.  “I dearly love volunteering at B&B every year and it is something I look forward to.  The volunteer team is always great to work with and I enjoy getting to know them.”  In regards to the dinner guests, she wrote, “I love the smiles on folks faces when we are serving and I love hearing their stories.”

Although Richard was very disappointed that he was unable to attend the dinner, his sponsorship for the evening brought smiles to the faces of those he was trying to help and serve.   B&B is very grateful to have the on-going support of Richard and his Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. team members.
