How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Oregon & SW Washington

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 Oregon & SW Washington recently presented Oregon Food Bank and Clark County Food Bank with checks totaling $50,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Roger Hinshaw, President of Bank of America Oregon & Southwest Washington, about our role in keeping Oregon & Southwest Washington moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Bank of America has been a long-time advocate for workforce development and job creation within Oregon and Southwest Washington. We partner with local leaders and organizations at the intersection of education and economic development to help connect individuals with secure family-wage careers. These efforts encompass skills development, education on viable career paths and networking programs that bring Portland’s major employers together with local students and talent from historically marginalized communities. 

To further support advancing economic mobility in our region, we work with local organizations to address food insecurity as well as provide access to affordable housing and healthcare to our community members in need. And to support the region’s vital small businesses, we provide financial mentorship to entrepreneurs throughout the region. We address these pressing community needs through philanthropy, strategic partnership and by mobilizing our employees to provide thousands of volunteer hours each year.

Jobs that pay a living wage — and so much more

Portland Community College provides educational and career development services to residents of five Oregon counties, with support from the PCC Foundation. The organization’s extensive experience with Black and Latino communities, vulnerable populations — including people with health challenges, those with a history of housing insecurity or incarceration, and English-language learners — helps coordinate education, social services and job assistance so each participant can achieve economic self-sufficiency. As Oregon enters a post-Covid recovery, training programs are in high demand, underscoring a need for additional funding for the organization to provide comprehensive support for local residents and businesses.

Fueling economic growth through jobs and skills development

The job skills gap has disproportionately affected Black and Latino individuals – and this disparity has been compounded by the coronavirus. To help address this gap, Bank of America works with local nonprofits, employers and broader networks across the country to support skills-training programs that meet the specific workforce demands of local communities. The result is a diverse talent pipeline for employers – and a clear path to employment for individuals.
