Bradenton, Fla. (Oct. 5, 2017) – Manatee County Habitat for Humanity and Bank of America came together in the Bradenton as part of Bank of America’s fourth Global Build in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Bank of America employee volunteers worked alongside homeowners to help build, rehabilitate or repairs homes, helping to address affordable housing needs.
“When families have access to affordable housing, they’re more likely to have long-term financial stability,” said Mike McCoy, Sarasota/Manatee market president, Bank of America. “Our employees enjoy partnering with Habitat for Humanity and the future homeowner to help them gain economic mobility and build a thriving Bradenton community.”
The Bradenton home build comes as part of the fourth Habitat Global Build (#GlobalBuild) that marks the bank’s more than 30-year commitment to Habitat for Humanity. Between September 30 and October 7, more than 2,500 Bank of America employee volunteers, Habitat for Humanity colleagues, and families are working together on builds and revitalization projects that help families achieve the dream of homeownership. Projects will take place in more than 88 communities across six countries, including the U.S.
“Bank of America has been a long-standing partner with Manatee Habitat and we always enjoy working with their team and appreciate their support,” said Diana Shoemaker, Executive Director, Manatee County Habitat for Humanity.
