Harvest Hope recently received a $25,000 donation from Bank of America to address food insecurity in the Upstate as part of the bank's employee booster program.

"Harvest Hope remains an important partner for Bank of America, as we collectively aim to eliminate hunger in the Upstate," Stacy Brandon, president of Bank of America Upstate SC, said in a news release. "This booster initiative provides significant funding to help Harvest Hope address food insecurity challenges, while also promoting the health and wellness of our teammates and the overall community."

The bank gave $100 to the food bank for every Bank of America employee who received a COVID-19 booster shot, notified the bank before the end of January and made a small contribution toward Harvest Hope.

In 2021, Bank of America also provided Harvest Hope with a statewide $90,000 contribution and Upstate employees collected 2,700 pounds of food for the nonprofit, according to the company. For every dollar donated, Harvest Hope can help provide five meals.
