6th Annual Global Build Week with Bank of America
Bank of America and Habitat for Humanity are kicking off the sixth Global Build in 108 communities, including here in Rochester!
Yesterday, our local branches brought 24 volunteers and a generous $20,000 donation to support the construction of 105 Holworthy Street, one of four new homes being built at the intersection of Holworthy & Dakota Streets.
Habitat and Bank of America have partnered for more than 30 years, with nearly $80 million in funding invested from the bank's charitable foundation and 40,000 volunteer hours from employees annually, ranging from board service to home build initiatives and financial literacy training.
Locally, Kristina Dengler, VP, Rochester Market Manager serves on our Board of Directors, and more local volunteers will be out on Holworthy Street again this afternoon!
This year is the largest Bank of America #GlobalBuild to date with nearly 2,800 #BofAVolunteers across 10 countries!
Villanova College (Canada) students spend a week volunteering in Rochester
Today is International Women's Day and we have been hosting a group of international volunteers (who just happened to be mostly young women) from our Canadian neighbors to the north all week!
For five years now, seniors from Villanova College (a high school in King City, near Toronto) have come down to build with us for a week! A huge thank you as well to St. Margaret Mary Church for giving them a wonderful place to rest and reflect between building!
