East West Bank, one of the largest independent banks headquartered in California which operates 13 locations in the Texas/Southwest Region, honored Houston’s first responders by contributing $10,000 to the Houston Police Foundation.
“East West Bank is committed to building bridges in our communities,” said Burr. “We are thrilled to commemorate the reopening of our great city with today’s event and finally reconnect with our public safety and community partners in person,” said Senior Managing Director and Head of Texas Market for East West Bank Mike Burr.
The contribution was presented to HPF Executive Director Charlene Floyd, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner and Houston Assistant Police Chief Ban Tien at a Public Safety and Community Engagement event held at the bank’s Regional Head Office in Houston. Other key local officials and representatives from community organizations attended the event, which featured remarks from Christopher Olson, Director of Trade and International Affairs for the City of Houston; Police Chief Finner; and Burr.
East West Bank looks forward to continuing to support our partners as we work through this recovery together.”
