Bank of America is helping the Greenwich United Way help others by presenting the organization with a $5,000 grant that will help it continue assisting individuals in crisis through the shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, assistance to victims of abuse, and services for disaster victims.

The partnership between the bank and Greenwich United Way brings financial and volunteer support to the organization’s initiatives and affiliated organizations. At one such affiliated organization, Neighbor to Neighbor, Bank of America employee volunteers were recently on hand to help stock shelves and sort donations at the agency’s food and clothing pantry.

“The Greenwich United Way and our partner agencies have truly been honored by the time, commitment and investment of the Bank of America and its staff in support of local communities,” said Tom Gabriel, the Greenwich United Way’s director of development. “The bank’s recent contribution to our United Way, coupled with the time their employees spent volunteering at Neighbor to Neighbor, will make a significant impact assisting individuals in crisis in this community.”

“Many families still struggle to meet basic needs like food, clothing and shelter — a problem that comes into sharp focus during the holiday season,” said Bill Tommins, Southern Connecticut market president at Bank of America. “The United Way and groups like Neighbor to Neighbor are critical in connecting resources with those in need.”

The Greenwich United Way is committed to targeting needs, mobilizing communities, and changing lives. In addition to its work identifying and meeting health and human service needs, it is the largest non-governmental source of funding for local health and human service programs.
