City National Bank, the premier private and commercial bank in Florida, will show its support for the victims and families of the Pulse nightclub shooting on Friday, July 1 by wearing “#OrlandoStrong” custom-made t-shirts. The bank’s employees across the state will be wearing the shirt in solidarity with Orlando and make a statement against the hate and violence that senselessly claimed the lives of 49 people on June 12, 2016.
“At City National Bank we have a long history of supporting the communities we serve. And in this instance, we want to support our team members in Orlando, whose community was impacted by the shooting,” CNB President and CEO Jorge Gonzalez said. “We want to send a clear message that City National Bank stands against hate and violence and stands in solidarity with the victims and Orlando community.
In addition, the bank is making a $10,000 donation to the OneOrlando Fund created to assist victims and their families and will be matching employee donations.
“We can each play a role in helping someone and in standing for unity, love and embracing the diversity that strengthens our communities and our country,” Gonzalez added. “City National Bank stands behind the Orlando community as it works to recover from this senseless act of violence.”
