公民銀行華盛頓街分行開幕 捐款資助華埠獅子會

On September 22, 2016, the Citizens Bank branch at 580 Washington St had their grand opening, ribbon cutting celebration.  Many familiar Chinatown business owners and friends came to wish the branch manager, Herb Wong good luck and success.  This particular branch utilized the latest design and technology in banking, one of only three other locations that have this technology.

The Asian American Civic Association (AACA) brought a group of students from their banking class.  This class gives these 10-15 students exposure to the banking industry, and ultimately land a job.  The fact that two (2) of their current employees came from this program is a testimony to its commitment to community success.

Another group who benefited from the generosity of Citizens Bank was the Boston Chinatown Lions Club.  A monetary donation was given to the Lions who are dedicated to Service in the Community and Humanity around the world.  The Boston Chinatown Lions Club will celebrate their 30th Anniversary in January, while Lions Club International will celebrate their 100th year.  Lions Club International has 1.35 million members around the world, with 46,000 clubs in over 200 countries.  The Club donates 100% of all they fundraise back to the community and charities.

Some of the charities that Lions Clubs endorses is Mass Lions Eye Research Fund, Lions Club International Foundation and disaster relief, 33K Lions Eyemobile, and the local Kwong Kow Chinese School.  It was a wonderful celebration and a connection to the Boston Chinatown community.
