Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando was recently awarded a $40,000 grant from Bank of America. The grant is part of a $23 million philanthropic investment by Bank of America to build and rehab affordable housing, offer foreclosure prevention services and homeowner counseling, and provide other services intended to invigorate and rejuvenate neighborhoods.
The non-profit also raised more than $80,000 during its annual “What Will You Build?” fundraising breakfast. More than 200 business and community leaders attended the event to support Habitat’s mission to address substandard housing.
