Habitat for Humanity and Bank of America Team Up for Global Build
Experienced financial services executive Peter Ambrose serves as managing director of the Merrill Lynch offices and personnel in northern Virginia. Outside of his activities at Merrill Lynch, Peter Ambrose supports a number of charitable organizations, including Habitat for Humanity.
For the second consecutive year, Habitat for Humanity teamed up with Bank of America for its Global Build, an initiative designed to address affordable housing challenges in communities around the world. During the week-long Global Build, approximately 2,000 Bank of America employees worked with Habitat for Humanity on 75 revitalization projects in the United States and several other countries, including Canada, China, Australia, and India.
Global Build is part of Habitat and Bank of America’s broader partnership, which began as a housing sponsorship program in 1990. Over the years, Bank of America has provided millions of dollars to support Habitat, and Bank of America employees have donated hours upon hours to the nonprofit group’s affordable housing projects.
