Bank of America: Lending a helping hand

Bank of America recently awarded the Greenwich United Way a $5,000 grant to support the organization’s community assistance program as part of a larger partnership that aims to improve the quality of life for residents of Fairfield County.

The partnership brings financial and volunteer support to the organization’s initiatives and affiliated organizations.

At one such affiliated organization, Neighbor to Neighbor, Bank of America volunteers were recently on hand to help stock shelves and sort donations at the agency’s food and clothing pantry.

“Bank of America has an extraordinary reputation for investing in the fabric of local communities,” said Tom Gabriel, Greenwich United Way’s director of development.

“Its recent gift 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.”

The grant is supporting the United Way’s Assisting Individuals in Crisis program, which provides shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, assistance to victims of abuse and services for disaster victims.

“A growing number of individuals and families throughout Fairfield County are facing significant challenges this holiday season, particularly those severely impacted by recent storms,” said Bill Tommins, Southern Connecticut market president for Bank of America. “The United Way and affiliated organizations like Neighbor to Neighbor are tremendous resources for those in need.”
