Gioia McCarthy | President, Bank of America San Francisco-East Bay
Hear from Gioia McCarthy, President of Bank of America San Francisco-East Bay, about our role in keeping San Francisco-East Bay moving forward.
As the economy begins to improve across San Francisco and the East Bay, it’s important to help our most vulnerable populations such as seniors, disabled adults and the formerly homeless be able to afford to still call the Bay Area ‘home.’
We are committed to helping our communities thrive - dedicating our resources to address the issues that matter most in each community where we live and work.
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 San Francisco recently presented Alameda County Community Food Bank and San Francisco-Marin Food Bank with checks totaling $225,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
Our entire region benefitted by a partnership between The Valley Medical Center Foundation and the Silicon Valley Leadership Group that coordinated distributing medical supplies like ventilators and personal protective equipment to where it was needed most. To help local hospitals scale up their aid efforts, Bank of America provided a $550,000 grant as part of its national pledge to support nonprofits responding to the pandemic.
