BAC Community Bank put a fresh spin on its traditional newsletter as part of a special outreach in honor of ICBA Community Banking Month. The Stockton, Calif.- based bank used the special communication to highlight its role as a job creator and supporter within its community.
In a recent newsletter to customers, BAC Community Bank revealed that it employs 115 individuals, supports 91 families, and provides a full slate of benefits to 174 people. The bank also noted that its employees contributed over 350 hours towards non-profit activities and that the bank made contributions of $134,850 to 155 organizations in 2015.
In that same communication, the bank also shared its long-standing ties with Visionary Home Builders (VHB), a prominent leader in the development and renovation of affordable housing in California’s Central Valley region. Thirty-three years ago the bank helped fund a project to improve living conditions for workers residing in public housing. Today, in addition to providing seed financing for many of VHB’s projects, the bank also provides a line of credit to help the organization with a project for veteran and family housing in the downtown Stockton area.
