Liberty Bank, Connecticut’s oldest bank headquartered in Middletown, recently donated to a local organization on behalf of its customers just in time for the New Year. The charity of choice was Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness (CCEH), which has spent over 35 years working to end homelessness in the state.
In February, Robert Parry, SVP and Chief Administrative Officer of Liberty Bank presented a $5,000 check to Richard Cho, Chief Executive Officer, and Madeline Ravich, Development Advisor of CCEH.
“We are grateful for Liberty Bank’s ongoing commitment to our efforts to end homelessness in Connecticut,” said Richard Cho, CEO of the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness. “Liberty’s leadership has been pivotal in our success of creating comprehensive housing solutions for all members of our community, and this funding will play an important role in our efforts in the coming year.”
“Liberty Bank has a longstanding commitment to ending homelessness, and are longtime supporters of the Coalition’s advocacy on behalf of the homeless," Parry said. Everyone deserves a safe place to live. That security is the base on which all of life’s other goals can be achieved.”
Throughout its footprint, Liberty Bank is dedicated to giving back to non-profits focused on helping adults, families and children gain access to quality services. This is achieved through donations from both the Bank and its Foundation, and a work environment dedicated to volunteerism.
Established in 1825, Liberty Bank is Connecticut’s oldest bank, with more than $4.8 billion in assets and 55 banking offices throughout the central, eastern, western and shoreline areas of the state. As a full-service financial institution, Liberty offers consumer and commercial banking, home mortgages, insurance, and investment services. Named as a 2018 ‘Best Bank in America’ by Forbes and 'Top Workplace' by the Hartford Courant for seven consecutive years, Liberty maintains a longstanding commitment to superior personal service and unparalleled community involvement.
