Karen Zuber | President, Bank of America Bakersfield
Hear from Karen Zuber, President of Bank of America Bakersfield, about our role in keeping Bakersfield moving forward.
I'm proud to work for a company that is prioritizing neighborhoods, like ours, that are most in need. It feels wonderful to be part of the solution and to see the difference we're making.
We are committed to helping our communities thrive - dedicating our resources to address the issues that matter most in each community where we live and work.
We’re committed to supporting our employees’ health and safety and to addressing our local communities’ most critical needs. That’s why we donated $100 to local hunger-relief organizations for each Bank of America employee in the U.S. who let us know they’ve received a booster shot.
Through this effort, our team in Bakersfield recently presented CAPK with a check for $25,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, as public schools shifted to online lessons to keep students and teachers safe, some communities found themselves at a disadvantage: Not all families can afford the devices and internet access that make distance learning possible. Kern County Superintendent of Schools utilized a donation from Bank of America to provide free devices and ensure internet access for families, providing a “learning lifeline” for their students.
