As part of Bank of America’s continued commitment to nonprofit partnership and community involvement, three El Paso nonprofits will be receiving a total of $27,500 in grant funding to support their efforts in the area.
“These nonprofits are vital pillars of our community, and their work is now more important than ever in light of the health and humanitarian crisis our country is facing,” said Kristi Marcum, Bank of America El Paso Market President.
“Our partnership with these organizations allows them to better reach underserved populations in El Paso and Las Cruces, and is a direct demonstration of our continued commitment to addressing economic equality in the communities we serve.”
Here’s how each nonprofit is working to better the community:
- Rebuilding Together El Paso will use their funding to replenish PPE materials that were donated to the University Medical Center, and to increase their number of local home repairs by 50, an expected 25 percent increase in their typical number of projects.
- El Paso’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity is using the funds to continue remodeling ADA compliant bathrooms for El Paso citizens. Bank of America has contributed to all Habitat for Humanity chapters in Texas.
- Mesilla Valley Community of Hope in Las Cruces will devote the funds to rent assistance for those who have lost income due to COVID-19.
These contributions will help the nonprofits address urgent need to citizens in the region when addressing increased disparity due to coronavirus.
