Citi announced today that they will write a check to City Harvest, United Neighborhood Houses, USO of Metro New York and YMCA of Greater New York to the amount of $138,000 to combat hunger and aid youth in miscellaneous mentoring endeavors.
Citi committed to donating $2,000 to one of four tri-state area community partners and the Citi Thank You Home Runs for Communities Program that launched during the New York Mets’ 2014 season was successful.
Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson served as a player ambassador of the program and is happy to see the positive results in the form of a substantial donation. “The program added so much excitement to the on-field action at Citi Field this season,” said Granderson.
“And as a result of our 59 home runs, Citi is able to donate funds and continue to support the community even further.”
Both Citi and Granderson will host a luncheon today at the New York Public Library to celebrate the momentous donation.
