NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., February 2, 2016 –Three more major banks are supporting nonprofit Project Access of Newport Beach, California, by “adopting” the organization’s Family and Senior Resource Centers that serve residents of affordable housing apartment communities.
Recently, Bank of America adopted the center located at the Vintage Crossings Apartments in Anaheim, Pacific Premier Bank adopted the center at the Breezewood Park Apartments in Riverside, and City National Bank adopted the center at Vista Angelina in Los Angeles.
In 2015, Banc of California adopted the center located at the Hermosa Village apartment community in Anaheim and U.S. Bank adopted the center at the Stratford Place/Windsor Court Apartments in Westminster. In Northern California, U.S. Bank adopted the center at the Tassafaronga Village Apartments in Oakland.
The banks donate $5,000 annually for each center they adopt, with the funds going directly to support programs and services conducted on-site. They have an opportunity to renew the commitment each year. Bank employees can also volunteer to conduct financial literacy workshops and support other events and programs.
In turn, they are mentioned in monthly Resource Center newsletters, in the Project Access quarterly newsletter and other Project Access communications tools, and have a recognition plaque in each of the centers they adopt.
“We are delighted to welcome these banks to the Project Access family and thank them for making a significant impact on the residents’ lives with both financial and volunteer support,” said Project Access CEO and President Kathy McCarrell.
Project Access directly serves over 13,000 low-income individuals at over 60 properties in California, Colorado and Arizona where it fosters a culture of change by assisting residents from a broad range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds to improve their lives through education, employment, wellness, and financial capability, among other programs.
