Bundling Up With BNY Mellon

‘Now that the days are shorter and the weather colder, it’s time to bundle up. Thanks to an energetic group of Bank of New York Mellon volunteers, over 200 early childhood and school age children at the Dunlevy Milbank Center in Harlem were fitted with new cold weather coats, courtesy of BNY Mellon through Operation Warm.

On Thursday, November 7, the volunteers set up a “Milbank Coat Shop” and served as personal shoppers for the students. Together, they searched for the right color and fit. Participants were encouraged to express their personal sense of style as they chose the perfect coat for the frosty months ahead.

This year’s coat distribution was an amazing display of corporate philanthropy, engagement and volunteerism by Children’s Aid partner, Bank of New York Mellon. The Children’s Aid Society welcomes corporate groups from across New York City to participate in volunteer projects such as gardening projects, mural painting, special events, financial literacy training and many others. We are so grateful to BNY Mellon for their generosity and to their employee volunteers who visited Milbank to bundle up our young people, and warm our hearts.’
