Los Angeles, CA – November 17, 2014: Bank of America and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) have completed the renovation of a home in Compton, CA, which will be dedicated to new homeowner Trenisha Dorsey on Thursday, November 20th.

“Thanks to the donation of these properties by Bank of America, families like Trenisha Dorsey’s are given an opportunity to build stronger foundations and thrive,” says Erin Rank, President and CEO, Habitat LA. “We are extremely grateful to Bank of America and its employees for caring enough to help us build hope, lives and communities in such a meaningful way.
Donations will Provide Holiday Gifts to 25 Habitat Partner Families
Los Angeles, CA- November 14, 2014: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles’ (Habitat LA) Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program was developed to help provide support to families who recently moved into their new Habitat home or received home repair services due to a financial need. Despite the fact that they now have a decent, sustainable and affordable home, many still lack the resources for holiday “extras”. More than half of the families Habitat LA serves earn less than 50% of the County’s area median income. For a family of four, that equates to $40,750 annually. This year’s participants are children, senior citizens, disabled, veteran and military families.
A donation of $250 will sponsor an entire family, but a monetary or gift card donation of any amount will also make a big difference.
“Your generosity fills me with hope and the need to give back.
