MUFG employees volunteered hundreds of hours during the fourth annual MUFG Gives Back initiative in November to help many in need.

A team of bank volunteers from Orange County helped to build a home with Habitat for Humanity.  The house is going to a low-income resident and Veteran in the city of Fullerton, California.

“It’s part of our mission as a bank to fortify the community,” said Steve Cummings, CEO of MUFG Union Bank. “We consider it a professional duty, but it’s also a privilege. So it’s especially gratifying to see colleagues take that commitment to heart in such a personal way, devoting their time to meet human needs, not just during MUFG Gives Back but throughout the year.”

Congratulations MUFG Union Bank, N. A.!
