On Thursday, September 25, 2014, approximately 20 Bank of America volunteers spent the day renovating the home of Williamsburg resident, Angelia Robinson and her teenage son, in partnership with the Habitat for Humanity Peninsula & Greater Williamsburg. The renovation was part of a week-long global build, taking place in 36 communities around the world.
As part of the day’s activities, Bank of America employee volunteers also spent time working in local Habitat for Humanity ReStores across the Hampton Roads region, pricing, organizing and cleaning donated home supplies.
“Home ownership is a critical part of financial security and a cornerstone of thriving neighborhoods, but it is still hard to achieve for many residents of Hampton Roads, particularly low- and moderate-income families,” said Charlie Henderson, Hampton Roads market president, Bank of America. “These renovation projects as well as our wider investments are just a part of our ongoing commitment to make Hampton Roads a stronger and more vibrant community.”
