On June 10, 2017, MAOF hosted CITI Global Community Day, an annual
event whereby Citi bank employees volunteer their time, skills and expertise to make a difference in the community they have annual presence in. Citi Community Development Vice President Laura Peralta and over 50 Citi volunteers gathered at MAOF’s headquarters in Montebello to conduct pre-employment workshops for youth to prepare them with interview skills that would lead to summer employment and painted a structure at MAOF’s headquarters. Ms. Laura Peralta describes Citi’s commitment to agencies serving low income communities as, “Beyond monetary contributions, Citi provides additional support in forms of volunteers and program development to non-profit organizations.” Since its inception in 2006, Citi Global Community Day has contributed
over 2 million volunteer hours to communities throughout the world.
