Let’s build something together

As Pittsburgh’s local market president, I get to help make our region a better place to live and work by delivering the wide range of the bank’s capabilities in our area. I oversee the bank’s work connecting individuals, families, and businesses to resources that make their financial lives better from Cranberry Township to the South Hills. 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 Western Pennsylvania at this time. These initiatives, like providing access to healthy food and PPE, partnering with nonprofits like our 2020 Neighborhood Builders Bidwell Training Center and 412 Food Rescue, and supporting innovative workforce development and housing programs, allow us to all come together as neighbors and partners toward a better Pittsburgh.

Training that builds better lives

The Energy Innovation Center Institute (EICI) is the cornerstone of the Energy Innovation Center (EIC), a one-time trade school that educated Pittsburgh workers from 1931 to 2004. The EICI incubates energy efficiency focused start-ups and oversees the EIC programming, which helps Pennsylvanians from minority, vulnerable and underserved communities find stable, well-paying jobs with pathways for career growth. Since the program began in 2017, it has helped over 840 men and women, most of whom had not been in the workforce before. Bank of America’s funding supports EICI’s Training for Human Thriving curriculum, which is designed to help members of underserved communities address common challenges while offering guidance on aspects of long-term success, like developing personal career goals.

Meeting the growing demand for a square meal

In the face of the pandemic, Feeding America has seen the need for food assistance rise by 70% across the country. To support our nation’s largest domestic hunger relief charity in providing critical assistance, we gave Feeding America a $1 million grant and more than $15 million to its partner organizations.

We remain committed to supporting you with your financial needs during the health crisis. Of course, nothing is more important than your health and safety, and we have taken multiple steps to minimize health risks, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention. These steps we have taken in our financial centers include enhancing the daily cleaning procedures, implementing plastic screens and distancing markers, following local restrictions on the number of clients that can enter a financial center at one time, and requiring our employees to wear masks. In addition, we are requiring clients wear masks when visiting our financial centers.
