Bank of America, in its effort to work with local partners to provide resources to the vulnerable and needy communities most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, donated 60,000 masks to Iowa nonprofits.
Maria’s humility in Davenport was one of the organizations in Iowa that received personal protective equipment. The masks will be used as part of the daily operations in your emergency shelter and the continuous work schedule for permanent housing solutions.
“The health and safety of Iowa communities has always been a top priority for Bank of America,” said Heidi Parkhurst, Iowa Market President at Bank of America. “As we work with local partners to identify and distribute EPP masks to various organizations that are leading efforts to minimize the humanitarian and economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, it is just one way to help provide essential resources to Iowans during this time of need. “
The other organizations in Iowa to receive the masks are the Des Moines Public Schools, the Iowa Food Bank in Des Moines and the United Way of East Central Iowa based in Cedar Rapids.
The donation is part of Bank of America’s $ 1 billion four-year commitment to promote racial equality and economic opportunities. So far, the bank has invested more than $ 100 million in local communities affected by the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, including 15 million masks and 58,000 8-ounce bottles of hand sanitizer donated to underserved communities across the country.
