BMO EMPLOYEES HELP YOUTH RUN THEIR OWN BUSINESS



BMO EMPLOYEES HELP YOUTH RUN THEIR OWN BUSINESS
Tampa Employees Work Together for Annual Volunteer Day

TAMPA (June 7, 2013) – As part of a company-wide day of volunteering, Tampa BMO financial professionals from all lines of business took time away from their office to help local youth run their own business through Junior Achievement's JA BizTown.

Being a part of Junior Achievement's JA BizTown is a highlight of the year for participating fifth graders. The curriculum combines in-class learning with the opportunity to visit a simulated town and run their own business.

"Each year our employees look forward to the day we set aside to work together as a company in support of our community. BMO has a long history of giving of our employees' time and talents as well as our corporate financial resources," said BMO Harris Bank Florida President Dave Maraman.

Launched in 2001, BMO Volunteer Day has grown to include approximately 5,600 employees participating in more than 470 projects in communities across the U.S. and Canada, including activities to benefit children and youth organizations, elder care, food banks, community housing, health care facilities, family resource centers, parks and recreational facilities, military personnel, relief organizations and homeless shelters.

"Volunteer Day is just another demonstration of the great work our employees perform year-round in our community," added Maraman.
