Allen Staff | President, Bank of America Orange County

Hear from Allen Staff, President of Bank of America Orange County, about our role in keeping Orange County moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Bank of America is proud to call Orange County home. We are the neighbor who invests in the health and prosperity of our residents and businesses through thought leadership, collaboration, volunteerism and philanthropy. During the health crisis, we helped address immediate local needs around health, food insecurity, housing, education, jobs and the arts, focusing on positioning our vulnerable communities to become more resilient and ready for success moving forward.

Unlocking great potential

Despite being one of America’s wealthiest enclaves, Orange County is also a place of stark inequality, with tens of thousands of young people out of school and unemployed, lacking job skills, and often in trouble with the law. Hope Builders, a non-profit that trains young adults for jobs, calls these individuals “opportunity youth.” Now, with the national economy expanding, preparing them for employment opportunities is all the more important.

Getting people back to work – and helping food banks in the process

Faced with a surge in need brought on by financial hardships related to the coronavirus crisis, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County needed to bring in more support. With the help of a $250,000 grant from the bank, they’re bringing on more support and launching creative programs to help serve the community.
