Union Bank of California today presented the San Francisco Japantown Foundation with a $10,000 donation to support the organization’s mission. George Tanaka, Union Bank of California vice president and diverse market’s administration manager, presented the check to the Foundation on behalf of the bank.
“Union Bank has been part of Japantown for many years and our donation represents our continued investment in, and commitment to, the community,” said Tanaka. “We would not be able to be a part of such a great endeavor without the longstanding relationships cultivated at the local branch level by Japantown branch manager Keiji Miyoshi and all of our branch staff.”
“We’re very grateful to Union Bank for this significant donation and thank Mr. Tanaka and the bank for believing in our mission to support nonprofits that promote and serve San Francisco’s Japantown,” said board member Sandy Mori, who accepted the donation on behalf of the Foundation. “Union Bank’s generosity will contribute to a brighter future for the Japantown community.”
