City National Bank supports Carson City organizations

Nevada Appeal staff report
City National colleagues recently partnered with Vegas Golden Nights employees in Three Square’s Backpack for Kids program by filling 3,221 bags of food for students in the Clark County School District who are food insecure.

City National Bank announced its philanthropic performance in Nevada for 2018 and the many nonprofit organizations and charitable causes it supported last year. The bank contributed monetary and in-kind support of $190,000 to nearly 70 nonprofits, schools and community organizations in 2018.

The bank also announced that its volunteer support reached significant levels again last year as part of its philanthropic performance and mission. Bank colleagues donated close to 700 hours of volunteer service, which included serving on nonprofit boards, staffing charitable events, reading to students at various elementary schools, and much more.

“Our community involvement and support of qualified nonprofit organizations and programs continue to grow through our monetary, in-kind and volunteer support,” said Paul Stowell, Nevada regional executive of City National Bank. “In addition to funding numerous nonprofit groups, our colleagues continue to donate hundreds of hours of volunteer service to so many wonderful and worthy causes.”

Stowell highlighted the bank’s volunteer support of Three Square’s Backpack for Kids program as an example of how the bank looks for ways to help meet the needs of communities in Nevada. He said with a number of challenges facing Nevada this year, City National will continue to look for opportunities to help nonprofit groups beyond its traditional monetary support.
