Bank of America employees will partner with Habitat for Humanity to help build, rehab or repair homes and revitalize neighborhoods in 85 communities in 8 countries during its Global Build(#GlobalBuild), Sept. 24-Oct. 1. Taking place over the course of one week, the Global Build will celebrate 30 years of shared commitment to affordable housing that puts individuals and families on a path to  success.

“Access to affordable housing is a critical stepping stone on a trajectory toward financial stability and success,” said Kerry Sullivan, president of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. “We’re honored to have worked with Habitat over the last 30 years to join our collective networks, including the power of our volunteers, with Habitat’s expertise in order to help build thriving  communities.”

Each year, Bank of America employees volunteer approximately 35,000 hours to support Habitat’s mission through working alongside Habitat homeowners as they build or improve their homes, serving on the board of local Habitat organizations, and providing financial literacy training for future homeowners. This year, nearly 2,000 Bank of America employees will volunteer in countries around the world including: the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, Thailand, China, Indonesia and the  Philippines.
