Upcoming Volunteer Day with Republic Bank

Upcoming Volunteer Day with Republic Bank
The Borden Ave Homeless shelter in Queens houses approximately 231 male veterans. My Republic Bank is teaming up with Homes for Veterans to provide essential items for these veterans in honor of The Navy Reserve Birthday (March 3rd) . We are also working together to raise $500 for coffee and breakfast sandwiches to hand out to the veterans as we drop off the items. The drop-off will take place on Monday, March 4th 2024.
