PCSB Bank Partners with United for the Troops

PCSB Bank has announced it will partner with United for the Troops by launching a drive to provide those serving in the armed forces with much-needed donations.

PCSB will have red collection bins at all of its 14 branch locations to accept donations until May 31, 2022. A wish list of non-perishable items can be found at Wish List – United for the Troops. The drive commemorates Military Appreciation Month throughout May as well as National Armed Forces Day on Saturday, May 21, 2022.

This donation effort was spearheaded by PCSB Bank’s Veterans Affinity Group, including members and Co-Chairs Cindy M. Schwager and Donna Hermiston. In keeping with its inclusive workplace culture, PCSB’s Senior Vice President, Chief Diversity Officer and Director of Community Development Michelle A. Nicholas established a number of Employee Affinity Groups at the Bank.

Military Appreciation Month was implemented in 1999 as a way for the public to show their appreciation to our military members, past and present. National Armed Forces Day was established by President Harry S. Truman in 1949 as a special way for citizens to thank those who are currently serving in the armed forces and celebrate the five branches of the military.
