Bank of America, a national partner of the United Way partner, showed its support locally for the Greenwich United Way with a grant of $5,000 that is being directed toward the United Way’s "Assisting Individuals in Crisis" efforts.
Through this initiative, the United Way provides shelter for the homeless; food for the hungry; services for victims of disasters; and immediate assistance for victims of domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse.
A dozen Bank of America employees volunteered at Neighbor to Neighbor on Nov. 16, where they stocked shelves and sorted donations to the agency’s food and clothing pantry during this particularly critical time.
Tom Gabriel, Director of Development for the Greenwich United Way, was on hand to receive the grant and to express the United Way’s gratitude toward Bank of America and its volunteers.
