How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in New Jersey

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 New Jersey recently presented Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Fulfill, and Trenton Area Soup Kitchen with checks totaling $700,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Alberto Garofalo, President of Bank of America New Jersey, about our role in keeping New Jersey moving forward.

Let’s build something together

As President of Bank of America New Jersey, I am proud that we have made a $1.25 billion, five-year commitment of additional support to help local communities address economic and racial inequality accelerated by the global pandemic. We will focus on assisting people and communities of color that have experienced the greatest impact from the health crisis. This work builds on economic mobility work Bank of America already supports in New Jersey and our commitment to responsible growth. I oversee the bank’s work connecting individuals, families, and businesses to resources that make their financial lives better from Sussex to Cape May. I’m also charged with helping strengthen economic opportunity and build strong communities through social responsibility efforts, which as we know are absolutely essential to New Jersey at this time.

Keeping the family business running

For multi-generational family businesses like Debra Oberg’s, it’s the personal connections with customers that help them thrive. But when the coronavirus hit, she knew they’d have to find some way of recreating the exceptional customer service they were known for, but do it outside the home appliance showroom. With the help of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), she was able to make the necessary adjustments to keep their doors open—virtually.
