How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Pittsburgh

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 Pittsburgh recently presented Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank with a check for $30,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from John Ciccolella, President of Bank of America Pittsburgh, about our role in keeping Pittsburgh moving forward.

Let’s build something together

As President of Bank of America Pittsburgh, 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.

A path out of poverty in Pittsburgh

In Pittsburgh, the nonprofit East End Cooperative Ministry works to change the lives of people facing the impact of poverty. Founded in 1970, EECM has operated soup kitchens, food pantries, youth programs, and emergency shelters since it was founded in 1970. But in 2020, when the need for food aid more than tripled in Allegheny County due to the pandemic, EECM stepped up even more: serving approximately 72,000 hot meals and distributing over 600,000 pounds of groceries. As food insecurity remains high, EECM continues to offer hot lunches, a food pantry, and a community garden — as well as housing assistance, employment resources, and mental health counseling.

Training that builds better lives

The Energy Innovation Center Institute (EICI) is the cornerstone of the Energy Innovation Center (EIC), a green energy-focused business incubator, research lab and center for job training, all housed in a one-time trade school that educated Pittsburgh workers from 1931 to 2004. As the program arm of the EIC, the Institute helps Pennsylvanians from minority, vulnerable and underserved communities find stable, well-paying jobs with pathways for career growth. To date, the EICI has trained more than 1,600 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.
