How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in El Paso

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 El Paso recently presented El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank and Casa de Peregrinos Food Program with checks totaling $25,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Kristi Marcum, President of Bank of America El Paso, about our role in keeping El Paso moving forward.

Let’s build something together

In our El Paso market, Bank of America has worked closely with education institutions, local nonprofits, government organizations and our community members to support initiatives and grant opportunities to stimulate job creation and community engagement in our area.

We sponsor several initiatives aimed at increasing financial literacy within our community because in El Paso, we believe that tide raises all ships and the success of one small business will create even more success for all of our businesses, and so on. We are extremely proud of our employees and associates, who we consider our leaders when it comes to spearheading these initiatives through volunteering and acting as thought leaders for programs in our community.

Back to work and helping others

In El Paso, when unemployment spikes hit the restaurant and food service industry particularly hard, the El Paso Community Foundation looked to other nonprofits for innovative ways to help newly unemployed workers. Within days of hearing of Get Shift Done, an organization across the state in Dallas, the EPCF was able to establish a local chapter to connect newly unemployed workers with paid opportunities at local food banks.
