Carver Federal Savings Bank donated $30,000 to three Crown Heights orgs at event hosted at its newly renovated Crown Heights, Brooklyn branch

Carver Federal Savings Bank ("Carver" or the "Bank"), which marks its 70th anniversary this year, recently hosted an event at its newly renovated Crown Heights, Brooklyn branch to recognize the important work of three vital non-profit, community organizations: DREAMS/YouthBuild, Crown Heights Jewish Community Council ("CHJCC"), and Crown Heights Youth Collective ("CHYC").

As part of Carver's continued commitment to the diverse neighborhoods it serves across Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens, a $10,000 check was presented to each of these organizations to support their meaningful work in the Crown Heights community:

  • DREAMS/YouthBuild program is part of the Settlement Housing Fund's Brooklyn-based alternative school and vocational training programs, which assists individuals in obtaining high school equivalency diplomas and job skills, securing employment and enrolling in college or vocational school.
  • CHJCC provides vital programs and services, such as housing, job assistance, adult education, and at-risk-youth and crime prevention, which are available to all residents of Crown Heights.
  • CHYC provides development-oriented programs to the youth and families of Crown Heights with cultural, educational, employment and career counseling services.

"Neighborhoods are only as strong as the people who live and work in them," remarked Michael T. Pugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Carver. "As a mission-based community bank we are thrilled to honor and support the good works of DREAMS/YouthBuild, Crown Heights Jewish Community Council and Crown Heights Youth Collective. The Crown Heights community is strengthened by the positive contributions that these three organizations make every day. I wish them much more success and look forward to our continued partnership." 

"Carver's newly renovated Crown Heights branch is yet another demonstration of its commitment to the local neighborhood," said Ditashiah Kohn, Director of Settlement Housing Fund-DREAMS/YouthBuild. "Our organization's mission is to help young adults become dedicated, responsible, educated, accountable, motivated, and self-sufficient. We are confident that we will be able to put Carver's generous donation of $10,000 to good use, and once again, we applaud the Bank for its 70-year commitment to serving the needs of low-and-moderate income individuals and families across the Greater New York City area."    

"The Crown Heights community is fortunate to have such a strong partner in Carver Federal Savings Bank," said Rabbi Eli Cohen, Executive Director of Crown Heights Jewish Community Council. "Our organization serves over 5,000 clients each year, providing vital assistance to residents and families in need.  Carver's generous donation of $10,000 will help us to further assist those who need help in the Crown Heights community.  We look forward to a continued fruitful partnership with Carver."

"The Crown Heights Youth Collective was established in 1978 in response to the need to provide comprehensive services for disadvantaged youth in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn," said Richard Green, Chief Executive, Crown Heights Youth Collective. "Now, more than ever, we need mission-based partners from the business community like Carver that can help support the important work that we are doing in the local community.  We thank Carver for its friendship and its generous donation of $10,000—which will be put to immediate use to support our summer projects."
