Mortgage-free home in Cleveland Heights presented to Pepinrivera
family during key ceremony today

CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As part of its ongoing commitment to give back to the communities it
serves, Citizens Bank has again partnered with Military Warriors Support
Foundation (MWSF) to donate a newly renovated, mortgage-free home to a
deserving veteran and his family.

The Cleveland Heights home – renovated by Citizens Bank colleagues and
donated by the bank to Military Warriors Support Foundation’s
Homes4WoundedHeroes program – was presented today to Retired Sergeant
First Class Charlie Pepinrivera, who honorably served his country in
Kuwait, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Inspired by his desire to make a
difference and defend his country, Charlie enlisted in the Puerto Rico
National Guard in 1993 and he entered active service in 1998. For his
service, Charlie has received numerous awards and commendations
including the Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, and the
Combat Action Badge.

“We are proud to honor Charlie’s brave service by providing him with a
home that has been refurbished with pride and great care,” said Brad
Conner, vice chairman and head of Consumer Banking, Citizens Bank. “Our
colleagues are committed to supporting the communities where we live and
work, and we are truly excited to have helped renovate this home for
Charlie and his family.”

“It is a privilege and an honor to award a mortgage-free home to Charlie
and his family,” said Kathy Feeney, Executive Advisor of Housing
Initiatives with Military Warriors Support Foundation. “This amazing
opportunity doesn’t get to happen by itself. Together, with donors like
Citizens Bank, we are given the opportunity to serve those who have
served for us.”

Charlie and his wife Maribel and their 6 children: Joseph, Mariela,
Joyce, Gabriel, Joimar and Jonnel will be relocating from San Antonio,
Texas to be closer to family in Cleveland. During their time in Texas,
the Pepinrivera family has been very active in their community and has
volunteered their efforts to feed the homeless; provide clothing and
school materials for children; and spread happiness and cheer to others
through inspiring music. They look forward to playing an active role in
their new community.

More than 100 Citizens Bank colleagues have donated more than 2000 hours
volunteering on various projects to improve the house. Citizens Bank
colleagues donated their time and talents, as well as items for the home
and gift cards for various stores in the area.

This donation represents a long-term commitment the bank has made to
give back to the communities it serves through its Citizens Helping
Citizens initiative. Citizens Helping Citizens Provide Shelter is one
component of this program. During the past five years, Citizens Bank
partnered with Military Warriors Support Foundation to donate homes to
military families in New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Michigan.

Since 2010, Military Warriors Support Foundation has awarded over 840
mortgage-free homes through their Homes4WoundedHeroes program, and has
assisted combat wounded veterans, Gold Star Spouses and their families
in paying off over $20 million in debt through their family and
financial mentorship.
