Kieth Cockrell | President, Bank of America Charlotte
Hear from Kieth Cockrell, President of Bank of America Charlotte, about our role in keeping Charlotte moving forward.
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.
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 Charlotte recently presented Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and Loaves & Fishes with checks totaling $1,275,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
When the local job market in Mecklenburg County continued to rise even during the Covid-19 pandemic, Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) responded to the local workforce demands, designing curriculums around the specific jobs in the highest growth sectors of the local economy. Bank of America partnered with CPCC to help provide Black and Hispanic-Latino students with scholarships to match PELL grants, which go to students demonstrating a financial need for tuition assistance.
