We believe we are stronger when we work together. That’s why our commitment to help strengthen our communities remains steadfast. To support the safety and health of those most at-risk, we’re partnering with local leaders and organizations to distribute millions of PPE masks. And we’re investing $1 billion over four years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity, building on work we’ve had underway for many years.
The health crisis hasn’t created the gaps in our society; it’s widened them. We’re grateful for organizations that have a long history of serving residents in need and are responding to the increased challenges so many members of our community are facing in this moment.Charles Bowman | Charlotte Market President
