Chase bank recently donated a $800,000 leadership gift to Neighborhood Plaza Partnership to ensure that the Department of Transportation’s community partners in under-resourced neighborhoods will have the support they need to maintain clean, green and vibrant public plazas.

On Nov. 26, Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras (D-East Elmhurst), center, was joined by Talking Heads band member David Byrne, left, nearby Walgreens manager Edgar Gutierrez, NPP Director Laura Hansen, Hort Executive Director Sara Hobel, Queens Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Seth Bornstein and QEDC Director of Neighborhood Services Ricardi Calixte to receive the check in Corona Plaza.

Gutierrez also received Chase’s Daily Point of Light Award.

Welcome to the discussion.
