Metropolitan Commercial Bank’s Great Neck team recently delivered 66 new and slightly used winter coats to Long Island Cares, Inc. for distribution to families in need all across Long Island.

The coats were collected during Metropolitan Commercial Bank’s 2017 holiday season coat drive. Coats were donated by Bank clients, Great Neck residents and Bank employees — a  demonstration of community spirit and collaborative relationship that has been cultivated between the Bank and the Great Neck community over the past two years.

“The Great Neck community, once again, joined with us in providing warmth and the hope that these coats represent to so many families across Nassau and Suffolk counties,” stated Laura Capra, Senior Vice President and Head of Retail Banking for Metropolitan Commercial Bank. “Metropolitan Commercial Bank is committed to giving back to the communities we serve and the compassion shown by all those who donated makes this goal possible.”

“For the second year in a row, our friends over at Metropolitan Commercial Bank’s Great Neck banking center have generously donated coats to Long Island Cares—helping local families stay warm this winter,” noted William Gonyou, Long Island Cares Community Events and Food Drive manager. “We look forward to this continued partnership in the years ahead as we remain vigilant in providing basic humanitarian needs to those less fortunate across Long Island.”

Metropolitan Commercial Bank also hosted coat drives at its New York headquarters and four banking centers in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Coats collected at those locations were delivered to New York Cares for distribution to deserving families across the city’s five boroughs.

Metropolitan Commercial Bank, The Entrepreneurial Bank, is headquartered in New York City and operates full-service banking centers in Great Neck, Long Island, Manhattan, and Boro Park, Brooklyn.
