Bank of America Charitable Foundation hits it out of the park with a $15,000 gift to Manatee County Habitat for Humanity
Bradenton, August 2019– Bradenton Marauders enjoyed a win at Saturday’s game, but the highlight of the day was a check presentation on the ball field for Manatee County Habitat for Humanity. Bank of America Charitable Foundation awarded a $15,000 grant to Manatee Habitat to support the construction of a new Habitat home in the city of Bradenton.
“We were the big winners of the day thanks to Bank of America,” said Diana Shoemaker, Manatee Habitat’s executive director. “Their support helps us provide new homes and critical home repair for our community, and we are deeply grateful.”
Bank of America is also a sponsor of Manatee Habitat’s 25th birthday party that takes place on November 9, 2019, on Bradenton’s Riverwalk. The free, family-friendly event celebrates the importance of home and the many volunteers, donors, sponsors, homeowners and supporters of Manatee Habitat.
“Access to affordable housing is essential to the economic mobility of every family and the health of their communities,” said Mike McCoy, Sarasota-Manatee market president for Bank of America. “By supporting organizations like Habitat for Humanity, we’re helping drive the growth of Manatee County and making the dream of homeownership a reality for even more local families.”
