Representatives from two local nonprofits including Alum Rock Jazz and Career Closet were on hand to each accept $1,500 donations from Union Bank in honor of its strong commitment to community development, education and the arts in San Jose.

“We are pleased to expand our reach in San Jose with this new full-service banking office, and we look forward to furthering our commitment to the community,” said Union Bank Regional Executive for the Northern California Division Elaine Genevro. “Fostering relationships with our customers and community partners is important to us, and this branch gives us the opportunity to build upon already strong relationships with residents, businesses, and nonprofits in San Jose,” added Genevro.
