Bank of America announced Thursday that it is donating $375,000 to non-profits across the Alamo City, including a $200,000 check to the San Antonio Food Bank.
Officials with the company said they wanted to help address food insecurity, which is an urgent need in San Antonio at this time. Last week, the food bank fed almost 10,000 households during a drive-thru food giveaway, and is in desperate need for funding during the high demand it is experiencing because of the pandemic.
“At Bank of America, supporting our communities and responding to some of the biggest challenges we face in Bexar County is what we do,” said Jessica Miller, Bank of America San Antonio Market President. “Many of our local residents and businesses, like others around the world, are hurting during the coronavirus crisis, and by working with leading local nonprofits, we are able to deploy critical resources to immediately address some of their most pressing, basic needs.”
In addition to the $200,000 going to the San Antonio Food Bank, $175,000 will be divided between Haven for Hope, SA Hope Center, Soldiers’ Angels, ChildSafe and United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County.
These donations are a part of Bank of America’s $100 million pledge to help communities across the country and world during the pandemic.
