Citizens Business Bank Serves as Red Cross Donation Site



Ontario, California, September 14, 2001- One day after the worst terrorist attack in the history of the United States, generous Americans are turning to the American Red Cross in the greatest wave of compassion that the organization has ever experienced, giving time, blood and money.  Citizens Business Bank is working in conjunction with the local chapters of the American Red Cross to provide a safe and secure donation site.  The Bank has opened a trust account in the name of the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund.


These cash contributions are fueling the massive National Red Cross Disaster Relief mobilization in New York, Washington D.C., the Johnstown, Pennsylvania area and other locations where the bereaved have gathered in Newark, San Francisco, Los Angeles and northern Virginia.


Individuals and businesses interested in making a contribution can visit any of the 30 branch offices of Citizens Business Bank to donate to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund. Citizens Business Bank has 30 locations in 23 cities in San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles Counties.  To find the nearest location visit the Bank’s Website at or call 1-877-4cbbank (1-877-422-2265).
