BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Kellogg Company announced
today that its annual United Way campaign generated a record-breaking $7.3
million to benefit initiatives in education, income, health and other basic
needs across the U.S.

"At Kellogg, we embrace a shared vision of bringing community resources
together to help improve lives," said Margaret Bath, senior vice president,
Research, Quality & Technology, Kellogg Company, and this year's executive
sponsor of the company's campaign. "Kellogg employees, retirees and Board

communities where they live and work," said Brian Gallagher, president and

improving education, financial stability and health for those who need it
most."

During this year's campaign, 34 company locations reported year-on-year
increased donations of 10 percent or more; eight of these locations reported
increases of more than 100 percent. In addition, more than 1,500 Kellogg
employees put their commitment to work through United Way's Days of Caring
