GREENWOOD, SC – Bank of America banking center manager and community market president John Cooper presented two checks for $1,500 each to Healthy Greenwood Neighborhoods and Greenwood Area Habitat for Humanity on Tuesday morning at their location on the 72 Bypass.

The two organizations received the grants through the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. Cooper said his role is to act as a liaison between the community and the foundation.

“Our charitable foundation has identified three priorities – jobs, housing and hunger,” Cooper said after presenting the checks. “We know that these grants will be used to help our community. There is a great mutual relationship between us and the organizations.”

Chad Charles, executive director for Greenwood Area Habitat for Humanity, was very pleased with receiving the grant.

“This grant will go towards our new program, the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative,” Charles said. “John (Cooper) was extremely helpful during the application process.”

Toni Able, executive director of Healthy Greenwood Neighborhoods, agreed. “John (Cooper) really helped by going through the application with us and helping us get it submitted.”

The grant to Healthy Greenwood Neighborhoods will go to support the Anna L. Robinson after-school program on Gage Street, helping with materials and other programming costs.
