Volunteer Effort Part of NYC Parks ‘It’s My Park’ Neighborhood Restoration Program

NEW YORK, NY (August 28, 2018) — Municipal Credit Union (MCU) members and staff rolled up their sleeves on Saturday, August 25th at Graniteville Quarry Park in Staten Island to volunteer and celebrate their neighborhood park and public spaces as part of NYC Parks’ It’s My Park program. MCU volunteers helped with path clearing, weeding, and gardening areas of the park.

“We are honored to be part of the It’s My Park program and bring our members and staff together to volunteer and beautify our community,” said MCU Acting President/CEO Norman Kohn. “With nearly 3,000 members living in the surrounding communities of Graniteville Quarry Park and our newest branch location just a few blocks away, we hope that many of our members – and the community as a whole – take the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy this wonderful public space and the great work done every day by the New York City Parks Department.”

Participation in the park cleanup is part of MCU’s corporate social mission to partner with New York City agencies and give back to the communities it serves. This is the first time MCU has volunteered with the It’s My Park program. The credit union has scheduled additional volunteer clean-up dates on Saturday, September, 8th at Jackie Robinson Park and Playground in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn and on Saturday, September 15th at  Elmhurst Park in Elmhurst, Queens.
