Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN DIEGO - Jun 09, 2017 - Project Access today announced that BofI Federal Bank—the largest financial company based in San Diego—has renewed its Adopt-A-Center commitment to the Family Resource Center at Meadowbrook Apartments in San Diego. This renewal will help fund Project Access’ critical programs that give low-income families in this high-need community a pathway out of poverty.
“We are excited to embark on our second year of partnership with BofI Federal Bank,” said Kathy McCarrell, President and CEO of Project Access. “Our Family Resource Center at Meadowbrook Apartments serves particularly high-need youth and families, and partners like BofI Federal Bank are instrumental in wrapping our residents in a comprehensive network of support.”
The unique Adopt-A-Center program engages corporate partners in “adopting” a specific Family or Senior Resource Center within Project Access’ portfolio of more than 60 centers. Banks and corporations that adopt a Project Access resource center make an annual contribution of $7,500 or $5,000 depending on the size of the apartment community. Funds from the Adopt-A-Center program directly support on-site programs and services. Partners have an opportunity to renew their commitment on an annual basis.
“BofI is the largest financial company based in San Diego. We have nearly 600 people here, so it’s our home. Through our partnership with Project Access, we are helping fund after-school programs, computer literacy programs and meal delivery for the neediest in our community. We’re very proud of this partnership,” said Evan Wagner, a Vice President with the bank.
Project Access and BofI Federal Bank have partnered since 2016 to serve the Meadowbrook community through financial education workshops and volunteer projects. For more information on Project Access and the Adopt-A-Center program, visit www.project-access.org.
