Thank you TEAM EAST WEST BANK for helping our community reach further!
PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 15, 2014
East West Bank was a proud sponsor of the United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ (UWGLA) 8th Annual HomeWalk 5K Run/Walk held on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at Exposition Park, Los Angeles. Team East West Bank recruited more than 280 associates, friends and family members to collectively raise nearly $33,000 towards the $1.3M total funds raised to support UWGLA’s mission to move homeless individuals into permanent housing.
There were over 13,000 individuals who participated in this meaningful event to help bring awareness to end homelessness in Los Angeles County. East West Bank is extremely passionate about community involvement which was demonstrated by our associate’s active engagement in the communities we serve. As the largest corporation with the most team participation, President & COO Julia Gouw and Team East West Bank truly showcased their support, commitment, and presence at the event.
As previously promised, United Way committed 100% of the proceeds from 2013 HomeWalk to bring shelter to 1,000 homeless individuals. United Way reported their achievement by sharing that each and every one of those 1,000 individuals now has a roof over their heads. This year, United Way promises to house another 1,300 homeless individuals. Team East West Bank should be proud of the role we’ve played in this landmark event that permanently changes the lives of thousands.
