NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 --  For the sixth year

for their support. As part of Eastern Funding's on-going commitment
to Corporate Social Responsibility, Operation Santa Claus joins a
wide range of community support programs including donations this
year to the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund run by the American
Red Cross.

early in the summer, when I first began preparations for Operation
Santa Claus, you can feel a company-wide emotional connection to
Operation Santa Claus among Eastern's employees. And now, with so
many communities in our area struggling to recover from Hurricane
Sandy, it is important that we include American Red Cross's Disaster
Relief Fund to our community giving."
