Bank marks re-opening with $5000 donation to Long Island Cares
6 August 2012
New York, NY - HSBC Bank USA, N.A, (HSBC) part of one of the world's largest financial services organizations, has marked the official re-opening of its Walt Whitman Mall Branch with an event for customers and community leaders. Located in new premises at 160 Walt Whitman Road, South Huntington, Long Island, the branch has been extensively upgraded throughout and now features some of the very latest in customer-friendly design and banking technology.
Operating with a staff of eight locally employed banking professionals, the new Walt Whitman Mall Branch provides a full range of financial services to both businesses and individuals. The 4,400 square foot facility now features a streamlined teller queuing system, three teller stations, in-door ATM, night depositary, internet connected customer pod and a Premier meeting room, as well as convenient parking close-by.
The branch team is able to provide assistance in seven languages (Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Bengali, Punjabi, Urdu Hindi, and Urdu) as well as English. Between them they offer more than 80 years-worth of combined financial services experience.
Mayra DiRico Head of Network, North East Region, HSBC Bank USA, N.A., said, "Long Island, with its strong international connections and close vicinity to New York City was the obvious place in which to enhance our East Coast regional branch network. We fully understand the importance of serving the Long Island community locally while helping them to make the most of the global growth opportunities out there."
During this evening's event, HSBC will mark the occasion of its Walt Whitman Mall Branch re-launch with a presentation of a $5000 check to Long Island Cares1. All funds will be used to support local community programs.
Robin Amato, Director of Development and Communications, Long Island Cares, said: "We're delighted to receive this donation in support of our School Tools Program. It is essential that children have adequate supplies to start the new school year successfully. The support of HSBC will allow Long Island Cares to distribute new school supplies, backpacks and other items to children who really need them, especially during these difficult financial times when so many families are struggling."
