EVDay is an employee-funded initiative that allows Union Bank and its employees the opportunity to give something back to the community through various projects and activities that drive positive social change.

The latest in the series tagged: “It Starts With U,” involved a bottom-up approach where employees were encouraged to identify needs within their host communities that required timely attention after which they pooled resources to solve some of the identified problems in their areas.
