The following is a statement from Joseph D. Roberto, PCSB Bank’s Chairman, President & CEO.
On behalf of PCSB Bank, we are angered, pained, and saddened over the senseless death of George Floyd and the victims of racial injustice before him. We support the nationwide outcry for social justice reform and accountability in the hope that substantial, lasting change can be achieved. Our communities are hurting and we are here to provide support with our voices as well as actions.
The PCSB Bank leadership group and employees of our 15 branches in four New York State counties are pledging to continue to help foster equality and fight against racial injustice. As a community-focused bank, we will continue our long-standing tradition of an unwavering commitment to utilize our time and resources to help improve the lives of people in our neighborhoods.
As a next step, PCSB Bank is donating $20,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (naacpldf.org), this country’s premier legal organization fighting racial injustice through litigation, advocacy, and public education.
We are proud members of each and every community we serve and have stood with them every step of the way. We stand with them today for a brighter future.
Joseph D. Roberto
Chairman, President & CEO
